As part of their efforts in developing greener chemistry, Bruce H. Lipshutz and his group at the University of California, Santa Barbara, have already pared Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reactions down to no organic solvent, little if any heating, and a minimum of palladium catalyst. But the fact that their recyclable aqueous reaction system still requires a relatively expensive amount of scarce palladium has bothered Lipshutz. His group has now found a way . . .
