The [PdCl 4] 2- palladium complex has been immobilized on a polystyrene-type resin loaded with pincer-type imidazolium ionic tag binding sites. The catalytic system (Pd(ii)-POLI-TAG) has proved to be highly active in the definition of an efficient protocol for the Heck-Mizoroki coupling reaction under batch and flow conditions. Importantly, it is shown to be highly robust in combination with a safe non-toxic reaction medium, i.e. biomass-derived GVL, since it could be reused for multiple runs without significantly losing its activity.
