In the title compound, [PdBr(C27H23N3OPS)]·C3H6O, the coordination geometry about the PdII atom is distorted square-planar, arising from the attached Br, S, P and N atoms (N and Br are trans), the maximum deviation from the plane being 0.2053 (4) Å for the N atom. The three benzene rings attached to the P atom make dihedral angles of 69.78 (7), 87.05 (7) and 77.50 (7)° with each other. An intramolecular C—H⋯N hydrogen bond forms an S(6) ring motif. In the crystal, the complex molecules form infinite chains along the a-axis direction through C—H⋯Br interactions, and a C—H⋯O interaction links the main molecule with the acetone solvent molecule.
