Abstract: In the title salt, [Pd(C10H8N2)(C6H6NO)2](PF6)2, the PdII atom is in a slightly distorted square-planar coordination environment by N atoms derived from two 4-pyridinecarboxamide ligands, in a cis disposition, and a chelating 2,2'-bipyridine molecule. The monodentate ligands are nearly orthogonal to each other [dihedral angle = 85.7 (5)°] and to the PdN4 plane [dihedral angles = 79.3 (3) and 78.7 (3)°]. The amide O atoms lie to opposite sides of the PdN4 plane. The most notable feature of the crystal packing is a linear supramolecular chain orientated approximately along [310] and formed via 16-membered {...HNCO}4 motifs. These are connected into a three-dimensional network by amide-H...O, F interactions. Both PF6- anions are disordered over two positions of equal occupancy in respect of the F atoms.
