The existence of complexes of palladium chlorides in aqueous solutions was examined for different chloride-to-palladium molar ratios. Spectral and potentiometric methods were employed in conjunction with the cryoscopic technique, and the complexes of palladium with chlorides were found to be only mononuclear ; the existence of binuclear complexes can be practically ruled out.
