    • Abstract


      The ligand 3,3′-(𝑝-phenylenedimethylene)bis{1-(2-methylallyl)} imidazolium bromide (1) and its Palladium(II) N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complex (3) has been synthesized and characterized by several spectroscopic techniques and the solid-state structure of 3 has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. The Pd(II) complex possesses ring head to tail 𝛱–𝛱 stacking interactions (3.767 A$^{\circ}$) through imidazole rings. Complex 3 catalyzes Suzuki-Miyaura `C–C' coupling reaction. DFT calculations have been used to understand the HOMO/LUMO energy and hence the stability and reactivity of Pd(II) complex in syn and anti-configuration.
