Soluble in dilute mineral acids, aqueous metal halides.Soluble in cold water, organic solvents and hydrochloric acid.


Catalyst precursor.Palladium(II) chloride is used to remove the stain present in stainless steel . Its solutions are used to test the corrosion-resistance of stainless steel. It is used in carbon monoxide detectors. It is also used for cosmetic tattooing of leukomas in the cornea and in the preparation of palladium(II) iodide by reacting with potassium iodide. It is involved in the synthesis of semiconducting metal-containing polymers. It is used as a catalyst for carbonylation of organic tellurides and deamination of phenethylamines to phenyl substituted pyrroles with copper(I) as co catalyst. It plays an important role in the hydrodimerization of butadiene to form octa-2,7-dien-1-ol.


Moisture sensitive. Incompatible with organic solvents, acids, ammonia, zinc, strong oxidizing agents, aluminum, magnesium, nitrates and thiocyanates.
