The direct arylation reaction has attracted attention in recent years especially because of its environment-friendly properties. In this study, we researched the synthesis of 2-hydroxyethyl substituted bis(NHC)Pd(II) complexes and also the synthesis of N-coordinate-Pd(II)(NHC) complexes containing Nbound benzimidazolium from palladium acetate ([Pd(CH3COO)2]) with 1,3-disubstituted benzimidazolium halides in DMSO. All the complexes have been characterized by using 1H NMR, 13C NMR, FTIR spectroscopy and elemental analysis techniques. The molecular and crystal structure of one of the complexes is confirmed by using single-crystal X-ray diffraction. These complexes have been examined as the catalyst in the direct arylation reaction with 2-n-butylfuran and 2-n-butylthiophene and have demonstrated excellent activity in this reaction.
