Palladium(II) coordination compounds of general formula trans-[PdX2(isn)2], X = Cl (1), N3 (2), SCN (3), NCO (4), isn = isonicotinamide; were synthesized and characterized in solid state by elemental analysis, infrared spectroscopy, and simultaneous TG–DTA. TG experiments reveal that the compounds 14 undergo thermal decomposition in three or four stages, yielding Pd0 as final residue, according to calculus and identification by X-ray powder diffraction.
