Synthesis and structure of the distorted octahedral palladium(II) complex [Pd(tmpp)2][BF4]2[tmpp = tris(2,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl)phosphine] Academic Article uri icon


  • The brick-red PdII complex [Pd(tmpp)2][BF 4]2 is isolated from the reaction of [Pd(NCCH 3)4][BF4]2 and tmpp (tris(2,4,6-trimethoxyphenyl)phosphine) (2 equiv.) in acetone at -44C; the new phosphine compound constitutes a rare example of a distored octahedral PdII compound and exhibits the shortest Pd-Lax distances reported to date for six-coordinate PdII complexes.
