The title compound, [Pd2Cl4(C8H11O2P)(2)], is binuclear and disposed about a crystallographic centre of symmetry with a Pd center dot center dot center dot Pd distance of 3.4662 (17) angstrom. It has a similar geometry to that observed in the triphenylphosphite and triphenylphosphine analogues. The Pd-P bond length is ca 0.04 angstrom shorter than those in mononuclear PdCl2(P(OMe)(2)Ph)(2), possibly due to the lower trans-influence of the bridging Cl- compared to a single-bonded Cl- atom.
