Abstract

Two palladium monodithiolene units are linked by an insulating tetraphosphinobenzene ligand. This neutral compound can be reversibly two-electron oxidized to a dicationic compound formulated as [(adt·)PdII(μ-tpbz)PdII(adt·)]2+. The degenerate ground state leads to a spin-triplet EPR spectrum that is defined by an amazingly small zero-field splitting derived from weak dipolar coupling between the remote dithiolene radicals bridged by the insulating tetraphosphine unit.
