This report explores Suzuki-Miyaura coupling under microwave irradiation, using a new generation
of catalyst that is based on natural phosphate (NP) impregnated by palladium. This catalyst was prepared
by the treatment of natural phosphate with bis(benzonitrile)palladium(II) chloride in acetone at room temperature. The catalyst
displayed high catalytic activity for the Suzuki-Miyaura coupling of aryl bromides and chlorides with aryl boronic acids in pure water
and with the use of microwave irradiation. The low-cost and availability of the solid support, mild reaction conditions, high yields of
desired products, recyclability of the catalyst and short reaction times are the notable features of these methods.
Keywords: Green chemistry, heterogeneous catalysis, microwave irradiation, natural phosphate, supported Pd catalysts, suzuki-miyaura reactions.
