[reaction: see text] Phosphine dendrimer-stabilized palladium nanoparticles were synthesized and found to be highly effective for Suzuki coupling reactions, affording good to excellent product yields, high turnover number (up to 65,000), and excellent reusability (up to 9 catalytic runs). Furthermore, these Pd nanoparticles are efficient and selective catalysts for hydrogenations.
