Palladium is one of the most common and versatile transition metals used in modern organometallic chemistry. The chemistry of palladium in its 0, +II, and +IV oxidation states is well-known; by comparison, the chemistry of palladium in its +III oxidation state is in its infancy. The work in this thesis involves the study of previously unknown Pd(III) complexes, including applications in materials chemistry and catalysis. Chemistry and Chemical Biology
