A new fluorous SCS pincer palladium complex is synthesized and shown to efficiently promote typical Heck reactions under microwave or thermal heating. The complex is air stable and can be recovered after reactions for reuse by fluorous solid phase extraction. By analogy to related complexes, it may function as a precursor of soluble ligandless palladium metal.
