The Pd(I)−Pd(I) dimer [(FPNP)Pd−]2 reacts with O2 upon exposure to light to produce either the superoxide (FPNP)PdO2 or the peroxide [(FPNP)PdO−]2, which exist in equilibrium with free O2. Both complexes contain square-planar Pd(II) centers. The unpaired electron density in (FPNP)PdO2 is localized on the superoxide ligand.
