Reaction of a triangle Pd(0) complex, Pd3(CNXyl)6 (1; Xyl = 2,6-C6H3Me2), with a dicationic linear trinuclear complex [Pd3(CNXyl)8][PF6]2 (3) afforded a dicationic hexapalladium complex [Pd6(CNXyl)12][PF6]2 (4), while the reaction of 1 with a dicationic dinuclear complex [Pd2(CNXyl)6][PF6]2 (2) resulted in the formation of 3. The molecular structure of the complex 4 was determined by X-ray crystallography and spectroscopic analysis.
