Pushmi-pullyu with palladium: Although created by Ïa donation from SnCl2 to a PdII complex, the Sn-Pd bonds in the compounds depicted exhibit formal Ïa donation in the opposite direction. Computational and spectroscopic data support stannylpalladium (Pd I-SnIII) and palladastanna(IV)ocane (Pd0 SnIV) descriptions over stannylene coordination.
