The copolymerization of CO with ethylene was studied with high pressure in situ IR technique using (DPPPr)Pd(p-CH3PhSO3)2 as the catalyst precursor. Two IR absorptions of carbonyl groups were observed at 1900cm-1 and 1810cm-1 under pure CO ambience, which proved that CO was coordinated with Pd(Ⅱ) under pure CO ambience. Three IR absorptions were observed at 1638, 1616, 1970cm -1 under real reaction conditions, which could be assigned to three intermediates (1,2,3) respectively, indicating that the insertion of CO into Pd-OR bond was probabaly one of the main initation path ways in alcohol solvent.
