trans-Di-[mu]-chlorido-bis{chlorido[tris(3,5-dimethylphenyl)phosphane-[kappa]P]palladium(II)} dichloromethane monosolvate

W. L. Davis and A. Muller

Abstract: In the dimeric title compound, [Pd2Cl4{P(C8H9)3}2]·CH2Cl2, the metal complex molecule is situated about an inversion centre and is accompanied by a dichloromethane solvent molecule situated on a twofold rotation axis. The PdII atom has a slightly distorted square-planar coordination sphere. The effective cone angle for the tris(3,5-dimethylphenyl)phosphane ligand was calculated to be 169°. In the crystal, the metal complex and solvent molecules are linked via C-H...Cl interactions, generating chains along [10-2]. There are also C-H...[pi] and weak [pi]-[pi] interactions present [centroid-centroid distance = 3.990 (2) Å, plane-plane distance = 3.6352 (15) Å and ring slippage = 1.644 Å], forming of a three-dimensional structure.
