Abstract

The formation of a cyclophane-NHC complex of Pd(II) via oxidative addition of a C-C bond in a bridged biimidazolium ion to Pd(0) is described. The active Pd(0) species appears to be [Pd(PPh3)(2)Br](-). Simple (unbridged) biimidazolium ions do not form NHC complexes under similar conditions.
