Abstract

Boron nitride nanosheets (BNNS) were used to anchor bimetallic Pd-Fe nanoparticles for Suzuki-Miyaura coupling catalysts. The bimetallic nanoparticles were found to be core-shell in structure, and their formation was likely facilitated by their interactions with the BNNS. The Pd-Fe/BNNS catalysts were highly effective in representative Suzuki-Miyaura reactions, with performances matching or exceeding those of the state-of-the-art methods. Specifically, the superior catalytic activities were characterized by generally shortened reaction times, minimal Pd usage, excellent reusability of the catalysts and high or nearly quantitative conversion yields in a benign solvent system without the need for any special conditions, such as ligands and surfactants or inert gas protection. The obvious advantages of the Pd-Fe/BNNS over similar catalysts based on other supports, such as reduced graphene oxide (rGO), suggest that BNNS may be developed into a versatile platform for many other important catalytic reactions.
