Reaction of [Pd(phen)(CO2CH3)2] (1) with phenanthrolinium hexafluorophosphate (2) gives in high yield the unprecedented pentacoordinate palladium complex [Pd(phen)2(COOMe)](PF6) (3) in which Pd displays a strongly distorted square pyramidal coordination. The reactivity of 3 toward bases was explored too.
