A range of single-crystal structures of the type [Pd(cod)(LL'-Bid)]A, where LL'-Bid = acetylacetonato (acac), thenoyltrifluoroactetonato (thtfac) and hexafluoroacetylacetonato (hfacac), and A = tetrafluoroborate (BF(4)(-)) and hexafluorophosphate (PF(6)(-)), are reported. The complexes [Pd(cod)(acac)]PF(6) (I), [Pd(cod)(thtfac)]PF(6) (III), [Pd(cod)(thtfac)]BF(4) (IV) and [Pd(cod)(hfacac)]PF(6) (V) are isostructural in the monoclinic space group P2(1)/c. The influence of the variation of the β-diketonato-type ligands on the coordination geometry of cis,cis-1,5-cycloocta-1,5-diene (cod) was investigated and found that no significant changes to the Pd-C and C=C bond distances were observed. The `Venus fly trap' parameters vary by 7.8° for the 'jaw' angle (ψ), while the `bite' angle (χ) remains virtually constant.
