A palladium-catalyzed external-CO-free carbonylative Hiyama-Denmark cross-coupling reaction is presented. The introduction of silylcarboxylic acids as bifunctional reagents (CO and nucleophile source) avoids the need for external gaseous CO and a silylarene coupling partner. The transformation features high functional group tolerance and it is successful with electron-rich, -neutral, and -poor aryl iodides. Stoichiometric studies and control experiments provide insight into the reaction mechanism and support the hypothesized dual role of silylcarboxylic acids. (Figure presented.).
