Novel Ni-Pd and Cu-Pd bimetallic nano alloys was designed and heterogenized on the highly robust ABPBI [poly(2,5-benzimidazole)] polymer in high yields using NaBH4 as reducing agent. These were versatile ligand free catalysts for the Mizoroki–Heck reaction and Suzuki–Miyaura coupling. The bimetallic Ni-Pd-ABPBI catalyst for the Mizoroki–Heck reaction of 4-iodo anisole could be recycled 5 times with high yields. Aryl bromides could also be activated for the Mizoroki–Heck reaction using Cu-Pd-ABPBI NP catalysts, with moderate yields.
