The synthesis of six mononuclear palladium complexes of general formula [Pd(ox)/(mal)L2] and [Pd(ox)/(mal)L′] (ox = oxalate, mal = malonate, both L and L′ are vitamin-B6 molecules (I), L = pyridoxine, pyridoxal and L′ = pyridoxamine) has been achieved. The structures of these compounds were established by elemental analysis, i.r. and 13C-n.m.r. [Pd(oxalate)(pyridoxine)2] was analyzed by single crystal X-ray diffraction. It exhibits square planar coordination with bond lengths 2.015 (2) Å for Pd—N and 2.010 (2) Å for Pd—O. The interaction of [Pd(ox)2]2− and [Pd(mal)2]2− with L has been followed kinetically in order to look into the nature of products and the mechanism of formation under the conditions [PdII-chelate] ≫ [L] and [L′].
