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-HCl and O-HO hydrogen bonding such that the N-HCl hydrogen bonds align the cation-anion pairs in a linear fashion along , with the O-HO hydrogen bonds connecting these linear strands along  and .
