A simple methodology for the decarbonylation of aldehydes catal­ysed by commercially available palladium on carbon in a green two-solvent system is reported. Various aromatic, aliphatic and heteroaromatic aldehydes were transformed to the corresponding decarbonylated products in good yields. Pro­duct isolation from the reaction mixture is simple in practice, and the cat­alyst can be reused three times.
