The 1,2-bis-(2-benzimidazolyl)-1,2-ethanediol (EH2) and 1,4-bis-(2-benzimidazolyl)-1,2,3,4-butanetetraol (TH4) ligands form 4-coordinate mono- and bi-metallic complexes with PdCl2, respectively. In Pd(EH2)Cl-2 the ligand acts as a bidentate through two of the nitrogen atoms. On the other hand, in Pd-2(TH4)Cl-4 the ligand coordinates to two palladium atoms through both bis-benzimidazole nitrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms of the hydroxy groups, forming two different isomers. The complexes were characterised by analytical data, magnetic susceptibility, molar conductivity, and also by i.r., H-1- and C-13-n.m.r. spectra.
