In the title compound, [FePdCl(C5H5)(C8H11N)(C18H15Sb)], obtained by reaction of diphenyl(N,N-dimethylaminomethylferrocenyl)stibine with sodium tetrachloridopalladate(II) in acetone, the PdII atom is coordinated in a slightly distorted square-planar geometry by a C atom of the ferrocenyl ring, and by N, Cl and Sb atoms. The Sb and N atoms are trans to each other.
