The synthesis and characterization of the adducts of n-alkyl amine and palladium n-alkyl carboxylate, [Pd(R2NH2)2(R1COO)2] (R1 = 1, 7, and 11; R2 = 8, 12, and 16), as precursors for the synthesis of palladium nanoparticles (PdNPs) was carried out via differential scanning calorimetry, FT-IR, Raman and UV-Vis spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy (1H, 13C pulsed field gradient spin-echo (PGSE), and 13C CP-MAS), and powder X-ray diffraction. Pd n-alkyl carboxylates were obtained by a ligand exchange reaction from palladium acetate and the appropriate aliphatic carboxylic acid. It is proposed that carboxyl moieties in the presence of amine ligands are bound to palladium ions via monodentate bonding as opposed to bridging bidentate coordination of pure palladium carboxylate which exists in the form of polymer aggregates.
