      While the Heck coupling of aryl bromides with styrenes by   palladium acetate entrapped within octylated silica sol-gel forms   almost entirely trans-stilbenes, the catalysis by the palladium   com- pound within the cis-pre-imprinted support gives stilbenes   that are substantially enriched by cis-ori- ented isomers.   Although the ceramic support is completely freed from the imprint   prior to the cou- pling process, cis-stilbenes are formed with   similar selectivities upon recycling of the catalyst systems for   at least four consecutive runs.
