(Bis{2-[3-(2,4,6-trimethyl­benz­yl)imid­azolin-2-yliden-1-yl-κC 2]-4-methyl­phenyl}amido-κN)chloridopalladium(II)

The coordination geometry about the Pd centre in the title compound, [Pd(C(40)H(42)N(5))Cl], is approximately square-planar. The CNC pincer-type N-heterocyclic carbene ligand binds to the Pd atom in a tridentate fashion by the amido N atom and the two carbene atoms and generates two six-membered chelate rings, completing the coordination.
