We report palladium(II)-functionalized MOF-253 (MOF-253-Pd(OAc)(2)) as a recyclable catalyst to form all-carbon quaternary centers via conjugate additions of arylboronic acids to beta,beta-disubstituted enones in aqueous media. We demonstrate MOF-253-Pd(OAc)(2) can be reused 8 times to form ketone products in yields above 75% whilemaintaining its crystallinity. Additions of a range of stereoelectronically diverse arylboronic acids to a variety of b, b-disubstituted enones catalyzed by MOF-253-Pd(OAc)(2) occur in modest-to-high yields (34-95%).
