cis-Dichloridobis(2-isocyanophenyl 4-methoxybenzoate)palladium(II) chloroform monosolvate

A. Tskhovrebov and M. Haukka

Abstract: In the title compound, [PdCl2(C15H11NO3)2]·CHCl3, the PdII atom adopts a slightly distorted square-planar coordination geometry composed of two Cl atoms in cis positions and two C atoms from isocyanophenyl ligands. The molecular conformation is stabilized by [pi]-[pi] stacking interactions [shortest centroid-centroid distance = 3.600 (1) Å] between substituted benzene rings of different ligands. The crystal packing is characterized by C-H...O and C-H...Cl interactions involving the chloroform solvent molecules.
