The palladium-catalyzed reaction between isomeric cyclododec-2-en-1-yl acetates and primary aliphatic alcohols was found to result in high yields of the reaction products obtained. The selectivity with respect to cyclododec-2-en-1-yl ethers formed as reaction products ranged from 73% to 93%. The kinetics of the reaction of acetoxycyclododec-2-enes with alcohols was studied within the temperature range of 328--358 K. A kinetic equation best fitting the experimental data was provided.
