The behaviour of allylpalladium(II) complexes in THF towards molecular hydrogen under mild experimental conditions has been studied. The decomposition to palladium metal and propane is discussed in terms of the fluxionality of the allyl moiety and the stability of a proposed PdH intermediate. Reaction of allylpalladium(II) complexes with H2 and allene results in catalytic selective hydrogenation to give propene. © 1978.
