      Irradiation with light (UV–vis and visible) was shown to increase   the rate of the Heck reaction at 90–140 C using both   heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysts. The photoreduction of   Pd(II) is  most likely the reason for the higher activity   under irradiation with light. This was demonstrated by the   addition of sodium formate.
