Palladium nanoparticles catalyzed Suzuki cross-coupling reactions in ambient conditions
An efficient pathway to synthesize biaryls and terphenyls through ligand-free palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) catalyzed Suzuki cross-coupling reactions has been developed. Mild reaction conditions, high yields of desired products, absence of inert atmosphere and short reaction times are the notable features of this method.
