Allylation of β-keto esters or malonates was carried out in good yields under neutral conditions by using allylic carbonates in the presence of palladium-phosphine catalyst. Although simple ketones, esters, nitriles, and sulfones hardly react with allylic carbonates, α-alkenyl or α-aryl ketones, esters, nitriles, and sulfones were also allylated by using palladium-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane catalyst under neutral conditions.
