The catalytic potential of graphene oxide (GO) and graphite oxide has been well explored in recent years. The reactivity of metal-supported graphite oxide as a solid-phase heterogeneous catalyst has started to be an exceptionally powerful tool for the construction of C-C bonds in synthetic organic chemistry. Among them, palladium has been widely used in different catalysts for a variety of cross-coupling reactions such as Mizoroki-Heck, Suzuki-Miyaura, Kumada, Stille, Negishi, Hiyama, and Buchwald-Hartwig, etc., because of its high catalytic activity and the rapid installation of a complex molecular structure with selectivity in comparison to other transition metal catalysts. A description of recent advances in graphene-supported palladium nanocatalysts for cross-coupling reactions is presented in this chapter. Catalyst synthesis and mechanistic aspects are also given, followed by comparisons with traditional methods.

Keywords: C-C Bond Formation, Cross-coupling Reaction, Graphene Oxide, Graphite Oxide, Reduced Graphene Oxide (r-GO).
