Due to their beneficial features, TRISO®-controlled pore glass carriers are very well suited for the preparation of catalysts for application in technically important reactions, e.g., C–C-coupling processes of the Suzuki-reaction type or highly selective hydrogenations. We describe here the development of first experiments with an effective and sustainable catalyst system in microwave-assisted syntheses. An essential advantage of porous catalysts prepared using microwave conditions is their reusability after reaction for further processes. The results are promising as regards the inception of a scalable reaction system for application in synthetic reactions using microwave energy.
