The alkoxycarbonylating carbamates 1 and 2 are readily prepared and reacted under mild conditions with polyfunctional substrates, e.g. amino acids, unsymmetrical diols, and unprotected carbohydrates (D-glucosamine and methyl α-D-glucoside), thus affording carbamates or monocarbonates in good yields and with high chemo- and regioselectivity.
