Recent work with palladium(II) complexes as homogenous catalysts for oxidation of olefins (1), conversion of carbon dioxide and hydrogen to formic acid (2,3), and studies of carbonate-palladium(II) complexes (4–7) , and involvement of such complexes in some catalytic systems (8), led us to investigate the equilibria leading to creation of a catalytic site in aqueous solution. Such studies provide insight into the nature of homogeneous catalysis and related photochemical investigations of palladium complexes (9–11) suggest possible new catalytic reactions and enhancement of known reactions.
