The Pd(2)X(2)(&mgr;-S)(dpm)(2) complexes (2) (X = I, Br) react with halogens to yield PdX(2)(dpm) (3) and elemental sulfur. Kinetic and mechanistic studies on the X = I system in CHCl(3) reveal that the reaction proceeds via addition of I(2) to give Pd(2)I(4)(dpm)(2) (4c), which then undergoes unimolecular decomposition to generate PdI(2)(dpm) (3c); the… CONTINUE READING
