      Bis(N-heterocyclic carbene) ligands coordinate to palladium(II) in a bridging fashion. In the presence of a coordinating solvent two conformational isomers were isolated in the solid state, which interconvert rapidly in solution. Upon dissociation of the coordinating solvent two isomers of a chloride-bridged dimer are formed.
