Classical and non-classical redox reactions of Pd(ii) complexes containing redox-active ligands†
Reactivity studies of a Pd(II)–verdazyl complex reveal novel ligand-centred reduction processes which trigger pseudo-reductive elimination at Pd. Reaction of the complex with water induces a ligand-centred redox disproportionation. The reduced verdazyl ligands can also be reversibly protonated.
