The review summarizes the use of metal nanoparticles as catalysts in cross-coupling reactions. Nanoparticle-sized catalysts are
used in a variety of reactions, however, this chapter will focus on their use in the following cross-coupling reactions: Suzuki-Miyaura,
Mizoroki-Heck, Sonogashira, Ullmann and Stille. Catalysts in nanoparticle size are often supported on other materials, referred to as
catalyst supports. The various catalyst supports utilized for nanoparticles used in cross-coupling reactions will also be presented.
Keywords: Nanoparticles, catalysis, palladium, copper, cross-coupling reactions, Suzuki-Miyaura reaction, Mizoroki-Heck reaction, Sonogashira
reaction, Ullmann reaction, Stille reaction.
