Abstract

Bidentate and tridentate coordination of a 2,4-di-tert-butyl-substituted bridging amine bis­(phenolate) ligand to a palladium(II) center are observed within the same crystal structure, namely di­chlorido­({6,6′-[(ethane-1,2-diylbis(methyl­aza­nedi­yl)]bis­(methyl­ene)}bis­(2,4-di-tert-butyl­phenol))palladium(II) chlorido­(2,4-di-tert-butyl-6-{[(2-{[(3,5-di-tert-butyl-2-hy­droxy­phen­yl)meth­yl](meth­yl)amino}­eth­yl)(meth­yl)amino]­meth­yl}phenolato)palladium(II) methanol 1.685-solvate 0.315-hydrate, [PdCl2(C34H56N2O2)][PdCl(C34H55N2O2)]·1.685CH3OH·0.315H2O. Both complexes exhibit a square-planar geometry, with unbound phenol moieties participating in inter­molecular hydrogen bonding with co-crystallized water and methanol. The presence of both κ2 and κ3 coordination modes arising from the same solution suggest a dynamic process in which phenol donors may coordinate or dissociate from the metal center, and offers insight into catalyst speciation throughout Pd-mediated processes. The unit cell contains di­chlorido­({6,6′-[(ethane-1,2-diylbis(methyl­aza­nedi­yl)]bis­(methyl­ene)}bis­(2,4-di-tert-butyl­phenol))palladium(II), {(L2)PdCl2}, and chlorido­(2,4-di-tert-butyl-6-{[(2-{[(3,5-di-tert-butyl-2-hy­droxy­phen­yl)meth­yl](methyl)amino}eth­yl)(meth­yl)amino]­meth­yl}phenolato)palladium(II), {(L2X)PdCl}, mol­ecules as well as fractional water and methanol solvent mol­ecules.
