Electronic structures of Pd(II) dimers.

Abstract:

The Pd(II) dimers [(2-phenylpyridine)Pd(mu-X)](2) and [(2-p-tolylpyridine)Pd(mu-X)](2) (X = OAc or TFA) do not exhibit the expected planar geometry (of approximate D(2h) symmetry) but instead resemble an open "clamshell" in which the acetate ligands are perpendicular to the plane containing the Pd atoms and 2-arylpyridine ligands, with the Pd atoms brought quite close to one another (approximate distance 2.85 A). The molecules adopt this unusual geometry in part because of a d(8)-d(8) bonding...
