The PdII atom in the title compound, [Pd(C2F3O2)(C24H43P2)], adopts a distorted square-planar geometry with the P atoms in a trans arrangement, forming two five-membered chelate rings. Four intramolecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bonds occur. The crystal packing reveals one weak intermolecular C—H⋯O hydrogen bond, which self-assembles the molecules into infinite chains parallel to the b axis.
