The square-planar palladium complexes trans-[PdCl2(PPh2-CH2-2,4,6-C6H2Me3)2] (1) and trans-[PdCl2(?2-PPh2-CH2-2,4,6-C6HMe3-CH2-2,4,6-C6HMe3-CH2-PPh2)] (2) were synthesized from [PdCl2(cod)] (cod = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) and the corresponding new phosphine or diphosphine ligands. The single-crystal x-ray structure anal. reveals for both complexes a trans arrangement of the two chlorine and of the two phosphorus atoms. In both cases, ortho-metalation leading to palladacycles is not possible, since all ortho positions in the benzylic rings of 1 and 2 are blocked by Me substituents. Both complexes catalyze Suzuki cross-coupling reactions of deactivated and even bulky arene substrates. [on SciFinder(R)]
