Cationic Î·3-2-methylallylpalladium(II) complexes with potentially hemilabile ligands XCH2COOEt (X = NPh2, PPh2, OPh, SPh) or methylpicolinate have been prepared and their catalytic properties in the codimerisation of styrene with ethylene have been investigated. The catalytic activity decreases in the order of decreasing trans influence of X: P >> N = O > S > pyr. The relationship between catalytic activity and spectroscopic properties of the complexes is discussed.
