A new method for preparing organometallic and monosilyl complexes of Pd(II), based on the interaction between [PdCl(SnCl3)L2] (L = PPh3 or P(p-Tol)3) and appropriate organohalogen compound or chlorosilane has been developed. The products without tin have been obtained with good yield (85-97%). The reaction mechanism has been proposed on the basis of kinetic and chemometric investigations of the reaction between [PdCl(SnCl3)(PPh3)2] and Me2SiCl2.
