An efficient C–C bond coupling reactions (Suzuki–Miyaura and Glaser) catalyzed by PdO/GO nano-catalyst is presented. In addition, PdO/MWCNT nano-catalyst-mediated domino one-pot synthesis of 2-alkyl/2-aryl benzofurans has been accomplished from 2-iodophenols and terminal alkynes. The formationof benzofurans proceeds through intermolecular Sonogashira reaction followed by intramolecular nucleophilic addition of internal hydroxyl group onto the acetylenic bond. The catalyst PdO/GO has been reused successfully,with nearly no loss of activity up to 5 cycles.
