Abstract

original image

Workin′ in a bromine: A palladium–polyoxometalate amphiphilic hybrid material serves as catalyst for oxidative brominations. The emulsion-based process avoids the use of toxic and corrosive bromination agents such as Br2 or HBr, and uses molecular oxygen as oxidant. The only side product is water, which is also the reaction medium. The catalyst offers good recoverability and recyclability.
