A facile and efficient method was developed for the synthesis of highly active palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) by microwave-assisted chemical reduction. The PdNPs with different morphology were prepared with or without KBr (capping agent) using ethylene glycol (EG) and citric acid (CA) as reducing agent in the presence of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), respectively. The as-prepared PdNPs were characterized by (UV-Visible Spectrophotometer) UV-Vis, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis. The results showed that the PdNPs reduced by EG without KBr (PdNPs-EG) has smaller particle size than other PdNPs. The remarkable catalytic activity of the PdNPs catalysts are obtained using a low amount of PdNPs (0.1 mmol‰) using K2CO3 as base and EtOH/H2O as solvent toward Suzuki coupling reactions of aryl bromides and phenylboronic acid for 15 min.
