In the current study, five novel perimidinium chlorides were synthesized in good yields by reaction of 1-(3-methylbenzyl)perimidine with five different alkyl chlorides under microwave irradiation in 30 minutes. Synthesized compounds were characterized by IR, 1H, 13C NMR spectroscopic methods and elemental analyses. Performance of in situ formed catalytic system which consist of the perimidinium salts and Pd(OAc)2 was investigated for Heck and Suzuki reactions in aqueous media, and desired products were obtained in good yields.
