Phthalide was easily prepared from o-bromobenzyl alcohol in the presence of a catalytic amount of Pd(OAC)2 and PPh3 under an atmospheric pressure of carbon monoxide in a good yield. When a large amount of PPh3 was used as a ligand, a better result was obtained. The six- and seven-membered benzolactones were synthesized by the same procedure.
