The reaction of dihaloethylenes with acetate anions in the presence of palladium(II) salts gave trans-diacetoxyethylenes catalytically. It was found that the system, PdCl2–NaOAc–CH3CN is the best for the diacetoxylation of dihaloethylenes, and that palladium(II) salts catalyze the isomerization of trans-diacetoxyethylene to its 1,1-diacetoxy derivative. The mechanism was also discussed.
