Abstract

In the title complex, [PdCl2(C16H12N2)], the PdII ion is coordinated by two N atoms [Pd—N 2.039 (2), 2.073 (2) Å] from a bidentate ligand and two chloride anions [Pd—Cl 2.2655 (7), 2.2991 (7) Å] in a distorted square-planar geometry. In the crystal, π–π inter­actions between the six-membered rings of the quinoline fragments [centroid–centroid distances = 3.815 (5), 3.824 (5) Å] link two mol­ecules into centrosymmetric dimers.
