(S)-[alpha]-Benzylprolinium cis-[(S)-[alpha]-benzylprolinato]dichloridopalladium(II)

D. B. Hobart and J. S. Merola

Abstract: The title complex salt, (C12H16NO2)[PdCl2(C12H14NO2)], is of interest with respect to organic and organometallic catalysis. The compound crystallizes as very small orange-red irregular prisms and the asymmetric unit contains three crystallographically distinct cation-anion pairs. The coordination geometry about the palladium atoms is square-planar with the chloride ligands cis to one another. The structure displays N-H...Cl and O-H...O hydrogen bonding such that the N-H...Cl hydrogen bonds align the cation-anion pairs in a linear fashion along [001], with the O-H...O hydrogen bonds connecting these linear strands along [100] and [010].
