A reliable method for encapsulation of palladium nanoparticles (6–8 nm particles) in halloysite (Pd@Hal) has been developed. The Pd@Hal was found to be a highly efficient room-temperature catalyst for Suzuki–Miyaura cross-coupling reactions that gave high yields of a diverse array of coupling products in 5:2 n-PrOH/H2O within 1 h. The catalytic system was remarkably effective with a broad substrate scope. In addition, the catalyst was easily recovered and recycled without a significant loss of catalytic activity.
