Here a novel Pd supported polymeric magnetic nanoparticles with urea-pyridine bridge (denoted as Fe3O4@/Urea-Pyridine/Pd) was synthesized and characterized. The Fe3O4@/Urea-Pyridine/Pd nanocatalyst was synthesized via a four steps process by using Fe3O4 nanoparticles, 3‐(triethoxysilyl) propylisocyanate (TESPIC), 2,6 bis(propyl-triethoxysilylureylene) pyridine (BPS) and palladium chloride. The synthesized polymeric Fe3O4@/Urea-Pyridine/Pd nanocatalyst was analyzed through different analytical techniques, including FT-IR, NMR, XRD, VSM, TGA, DTA, ICP, FESEM, EDX, and BET. The described palladium supported polymeric magnetic nanoparticles with urea-pyridine bridge (Pd-MNPs) was used for the C–C and C–N coupling of phenylboronic acid with various amines and aryl halides in DMF as well as Sonogashira and Suzuki reactions in aqueous solution. Also, the Fe3O4@/Urea-Pyridine/Pd nanocatalyst exhibited high structural stability and excellent recyclability.
