Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Pd2Cl2(C20H26P)2]·2CH2Cl2, contains one half-molecule of the palladium complex and a dichloromethane solvent molecule. In the complex, two PdII atoms are bridged by two Cl atoms, with the other two coordination sites occupied by a C atom of the biphenyl system and a P atom, resulting in a distorted square-planar coordination geometry of the PdII atom and a cyclometallated four-membered ring. The Pd2Cl2 unit is located about an inversion center. The planes of the rings of the biphenyl system make a dihedral angle of 66.36 (11)°.
