A new method for preparing neutral trichlorostannate complexes of PdII, based on the interaction between solid [PdCl2(MeCN)2] and SnCl2 suspension and a solution of an appropriate ligand in CH2Cl2, has been developed. The analogous method can be used to prepare complexes without tin, as well as compounds containing mixed anionic ligands. A number of complexes (including several new compounds) with amines, phosphines and diene ligands have been obtained by these methods. The procedures are simple and fast – the total preparation time (without recrystallisation) is ca. 30 min.
