A Pd(II) Schiff base complex supported on graphene oxide nanosheets (Pd(II) salen@CPGO) has been synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, ICP-AES, XRD, SEM/EDX and TEM. The synthesized nanocatalyst has been found to be an efficient heterogeneous catalyst for Suzuki–Miyaura and Heck–Mizoroki coupling reactions. Pd(II) salen@CPGO could be separated and recovered easily from the reaction mixture and recycled several times without a discernible decrease in its catalytic activity. The construction of a solid sheet-supported Pd catalyst would be expected to be a promising system to perform heterogeneous catalytic reactions.
