  1. Palladium immobilized on amidoxime-functionalized magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles: a highly stable and efficient magnetically recoverable nanocatalyst for sonogashira coupling reaction

    Hojat Veisi, Alireza Sedrpoushan, Behrooz Maleki, Malak Hekmati, Masoud Heidari and Saba Hemmati

    Article first published online: 5 OCT 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3390

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A Fe3O4/amidoxime (AO)/Pd nanocatalyst was prepared and characterized. The catalyst was obtained by grafting of AO groups on Fe3O4 nanoparticles and subsequent deposition of Pd nanoparticles. The heterogeneous catalyst was successfully applied in Sonogashira reactions. The catalyst could be recycled seven times without any significant loss in activity.

  2. Methionine: a green and efficient promoter for copper-catalyzed Sonogashira cross-coupling reactions

    Abdol R. Hajipour and Fatemeh Mohammadsaleh

    Article first published online: 28 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3361

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    CuI/amino acid was demonstrated to be an environmentally friendly and reasonable catalytic system for Sonogashira coupling of various aryl halides with phenylacetylene. Methionine as the amino acid gave the best results.

  3. Palladium complex containing two sterically hindered ligands as highly efficient catalyst for Suzuki–Miyaura reaction

    Nasifa Shahnaz and Pankaj Das

    Article first published online: 22 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3376

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A palladium complex containing two bulky ligands has been synthesized and its catalytic activity has been exploited in Suzuki cross-coupling reactions of various aryl bromides and chlorides with arylboronic acids. The complex is highly active leading to quantitative yields of coupling products under mild reaction conditions with low catalyst loadings.

  4. Palladium supported on diaminoglyoxime-functionalized Fe3O4 nanoparticles as a magnetically separable nanocatalyst in Heck coupling reaction

    Hojat Veisi, Alireza Sedrpoushan and Saba Hemmati

    Article first published online: 16 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3375

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    Palladium supported on diaminoglyoxime (DAG)-functionalized Fe3O4 was used as an effective and recyclable catalyst in Mizoroki–Heck coupling reactions.

  5. Room-temperature Suzuki–Miyauracross-coupling reaction with α-diimine Pd(II) catalysts

    Fuzhou Wang, Ryo Tanaka, Zhengguo Cai, Yuushou Nakayama and Takeshi Shiono

    Article first published online: 16 SEP 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.3365

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A new chiral α-diimine Pd(II) complex (rac-C1) has been applied as an efficient catalyst for Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions between various aniline halides and arylboronic acids in PEG-400–H2O at room temperature.
