An efficient heterogeneous catalytic method was developed for Chan-Lam reaction, coupling of amines and boronic acid. Copper on 4 Å molecular sieve provided yields comparable to the methods published. The method provides the main advantages of a heterogeneous catalytic procedure, the preparation of the catalyst is easy, the workup of the reaction mixture is simple.
