Carbonylations with CO-Surrogates

Due to the toxicity and the locational unavailability of carbon monoxide, our interest is also on the use of CO-alternatives for carbonylation reactions.  Here are mentioned mainly alkyl formates, formaldehyde and CO2. This we use in ruthenium and palladium reactions.
