An easily prepared tetraphosphine N,N,N',N'-tetra(diphenylphosphinomethyl)- 1,2-ethylenediamine (1) combined with PdCl 2 affords an efficient catalytic system for Suzuki cross-coupling of aryl and heteroaryl bromides. A high turnover number of 750 000 is obtained with the catalyst loading as low as 1 ppm. This catalyst system exhibits good stability and longevity. In this study, a broad scope of substrates is investigated and satisfactory yields are obtained.
