The nucleophilic carbene, 1,3-dimethylimidazolin-2-ylidene, reacts with PdClMe(cod) to produce the first methylpalladium(II) carbene complex, [PdMe(1,3-dimethylimidazolin-2-ylidene)(mu-Cl)](2) 1, from which the preparation of other methylpalladium carbene complexes may proceed, and the crystal structure of one such complex, [PdMe(1,3-dimethylimidazolin-2-ylidene)(NC5H4CO2-2)], is reported.
