Abstract: The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Pd(C22H26N2O2S3)]2·CH3CN, contains two complex molecules and a single uncoordinated lattice acetonitrile solvent molecule. The PdII cations have a trans-N2O2 square-planar geometry and the superposition of the two crystallographically independent PdII complexes yields an overall r.m.s. deviation of 0.292 Å. The PdPd separation in the asymmetric unit is 3.3776 (3) Å, while the PdN2O2 plane-plane fold angle is 1.62 (7)°. A short intermolecular SS contact between the central S atom of one complex and its inversion-related symmetry equivalent of 3.663 (2) Å is observed. Part of the ligand chain (S-C-C-S) in each complex molecule is disordered over two orientations and refined occupancies that converged to 0.450 (10) and 0.550 (10) for the one complex molecule, and 0.789 (9) and 0.211 (9) for the other.
