The molecular species that have electron affinities higher than the most electronegative halogens are referred to as superhalogens. Such species can interact with appropriate metal atoms, leading to the formation of complex compounds that have a very high oxidizing capability. In this work, superhalogen properties of PdOn species are investigated theoretically. It is concluded that PdOn for n ≥ 2 behave as superhalogens. The interaction of PdO2, a superhalogen, with a Ca atom forms a CaPdO2 complex.
