The asymmetric unit of the title compound, [Pd(C12H12NO)2], consists of three crystallographically independent half-molecules. Each PdII atom lies on a center of inversion and is four-coordinated by two monoanionic forms of the aminoacrylaldehyde in a square-planar geometry. In the crystal, adjacent molecules are connected through C—H⋯π and C—H⋯O interactions into a three-dimensional polymeric structure.
