This article describes the rapid, green synthesis of a biaryl compound (4-phenylphenol) via a Pd(0)-catalyzed Suzuki cross-coupling reaction in water. Mild reaction conditions and operational simplicity makes this experiment especially amenable to both mid- and upper-level undergraduates. The methodology exposes students to purely aqueous microscale organic reactivity and showcases topical research in the milieu of an industrially applicable process. (Contains 3 schemes, 1 figure, and 3 notes.)
