IRMOF-3 with a high surface area prepared by a hydrothermal method was used for deposition of Pd(OAc)2 on IRMOF-3 particles. The final catalyst was characterized with FT-IR, nitrogen physisorption, thermogravimetry, scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy combined with energy dispersive X-ray analysis, wide angle X-ray diffraction spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The prepared porous catalyst was effectively used in the Heck coupling reaction in the presence of an organic base. The reaction parameters such as the type of base, amounts of catalyst and solvents, temperature were optimized. The catalyst was then easily separated, washed, and reused 4 times without significant losses of catalytic activity.
