    Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reactions of arylboronic acids with aryl bromides were mediated by PdCl2 and bdppmapy (N,N-bis-(diphenylphosphanylmethyl)-2-aminopyridine) that both stabilizes and solubilizes the catalyst in predominantly ethanol as a solvent. Excellent yields for a wide variety of substrates were obtained under relatively mild conditions in this green solvent.
