Palladium nano-particles supported on ethylenediamine-functionalized cellulose as a novel and efficient catalyst for the Heck and Sonogashira couplings in water

Abstract

Palladium nano-particles supported on ethylenediamine-functionalized cellulose as a novel bio-supported catalyst were synthesized and characterized. The synthesized catalyst was found to be a highly efficient heterogeneous catalyst for the Heck and Sonogashira couplings in H2O as a green solvent at 100 °C in very low loading of Pd. The catalyst could be easily recovered by simple filtration and reused for at least 4 cycles without losing its activity.
