Herein we report the use of zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters as efficient and recyclable catalyst for Suzuki cross-coupling reactions of aryl bromides with phenylboronic acid. Zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters are highly active catalyst for the Suzuki cross-coupling reactions under mild conditions (room temperature, in air) in DMF/water (1:9) mixture. A variety of aryl bromides undergo Suzuki cross-coupling with phenylboronic acid with quantitative GC yields of biaryl derivatives. Recycling experiments showed that zeolite confined palladium(0) nanoclusters can be used as recyclable catalyst in the Suzuki cross-coupling reactions. (c) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
