In the context of palladium-catalyzed guanylation of anilines herein, we have been able to characterize and isolate bis(anilino) and bis(guanidino)Pd(II) complexes using reaction conditions under which stoichiometric amounts of palladium salts are used. Characterization of these palladium complexes strongly supports a mechanistic proposal for the catalytic guanylation of anilines using PdCl2(NCCH3)2 as catalyst that involves the intermediacy of these Pd(II) complexes.
