This review mainly discusses the various supporting tactics that have been used for the immobilization
of Pd complexes, and Pd nanoparticles typically on biopolymers, and the different characterization techniques used
for the resulting catalytic materials. The discussion also focuses on the detailed catalytic applications of these catalysts
in various organic transformations such as oxidation, hydrogenation and C-C cross coupling reactions including
Mizoroki-Heck, Suzuki-Miyaura, Sonogashira, Stille and Tsuji-Trost reactions.
Keywords: Palladium, heterogeneous catalysis, biopolymers, coupling reactions, hydrogenation.
