Tetradentate N,N,N,N-(diphosphinomethyl)amine ligands and their Pd(II) and Ru(II) complexes were synthesized under a nitrogen atmosphere using Schlenk technique. The synthesized ligands and the complexes were characterized with 1H- and 31P-NMR, FT-IR, TG/DTA, and elemental analysis techniques. Pd(II) Complexes were used as catalysts in Heck coupling reactions and Ru(II) complexes were tried in transfer hydrogenation reactions of acetophenone derivatives. According to the results, L4-Pd(II) complex showed the best catalytic activity in the Heck coupling reaction of p-methylbromobenzene with o-chlorostyrene. It was confirmed that the reduction of bromo and chloroacetophenones in all catalysts the conversions were higher. The results showed that Ru(II) complexes as efficient catalysts and up to 99% conversions was occurred with bromo and chloro acetophenones in K2CO3/isopropyl alcohol media at 80 °C.
