The oxidation of [Pd2(dppm)2Cl2] with selenium in the presence of NaSCH2Ph in DMF gives rise to a novel polynuclear complex [Pd4(μ3-Se)2(μ-SCH2Ph)2(μ-dppm)2Cl2]; a single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis shows that all the palladium atoms in the compound are tetra-coordinated with distorted square-planar geometry, of which two are asymmetrically coordinated with selenium, sulfur, chlorine, and phosphorus atoms.
