Formally hexavalent palladium complexes have been isolated and structurally characterized for the first time. Thermal condensation reaction of three molecules of 1,2-C6H4(SiH2)2PdII(R2PCH2CH2PR2) (where R is defined as a methyl or ethyl) provided trinuclear palladium complexes. Single-crystal x-ray analysis revealed that each of the central palladium atoms of the complexes is ligated by six silicon atoms and is hexavalent, whereas the other palladium atoms are divalent.

Synthesis and unexpected coordination of a silicon(II)-based SiCSi pincerlike arene to palladium.
Among multidentate ligands, pincer arenes, consisting of a central aromatic backbone linked to two-electron Lewis donor atoms by different spacers, are particularly attractive because of their feasible structural tuning with many choices of donor groups. Expand
