Abstract

Palladium nanoparticles supported on nanofibrillated mesoporous carbon (Pd@IFMC) were found to be highly active in heterogeneous catalysis for the Ullmann homocoupling of a broad range of aryl chlorides, bromides and iodides in aqueous medium without the need to any chemical co-reducing agents. The catalysts could be recovered and reused several times without significant loss of activity.
