A Merrifield resin immobilized phenanthroline-palladium(II) complex is an efficient catalyst for Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction between arylboronic acids and a range of aryl halides under mild reaction conditions. The catalyst exhibited both high catalytic activity and stability for Suzuki-Miyaura reaction and could be recycled at least 10 times without a significant loss of activity.
