Silver‐Triggered Activity of a Heterogeneous Palladium Catalyst in Oxidative Carbonylation Reactions

In this work a heterogeneous palladium catalyst immobilized on crystalline nanocellulose for selective oxidative carbonylation was developed.

This heterogeneous catalyst showed a very good recyclability and could be recycled up to nine times without any significant change in yield. There is a remarkable triggering of the palladium catalyst by silver. This heterogeneous process can be applied for a one-pot-two-step construction of polycyclic systems with multiple chiral centers.
