The palladium‐catalyzed direct CH bond acetoxylation of [2.2]paracyclophanes has been investigated. Various mono‐ and disubstituted [2.2]paracyclophanes were subjected to typical Sanford acetoxylation conditions. Oxime ethers, an oxime acetate, a pyridine, and a pyrazole with [2.2]paracyclophane cores underwent direct ortho‐acetoxylation in good to excellent yields using 1–5 mol% of palladium(II) acetate in combination with iodobenzene diacetate as oxidant. The reactions could be performed on a multigram scale, and the ortho‐acetoxylated [2.2]paracyclophanes were suitable for further functionalizations affording a hydroxy[2.2]paracyclophane derivative and a planar chiral benzoxazole.
