Gobs of globules: A polymeric imidazole/acrylamide palladium catalyst, MPPI-Pd (M=PdIICl and Pd0), was utilized for the allylic arylation/alkenylation of allylic esters with aryl/alkenylboronic acids and tetraaryl borates. Low catalyst loadings efficiently promoted the reaction with a catalytic turnover number of 20 000–1 250 000. The catalyst can be reused without loss of catalytic activity.
