Abstract

The palladium acetate-catalyzed coupling reaction of aryl boronic acids with carboxylic anhydrides or acyl chlorides was carried out smoothly in water in the presence of PEG or [bmim][PF6] to give high yields of ketones. The Pd(OAc)2-H2O-[bmim][PF6] catalytic system can be recovered and reused.
