Structural analyses of [Pd(C11H10N2O2)2]Cl 2.4H2O, (I), and [Au(C11H10N2O2)Cl2]Cl, (II), revealed that both metals are in square-planar coordination environments. The Pd atom in (I) is coordinated equatorially by four N-atom donors and has two long-range Pd⋯O interactions which lead to approximate pseudo-octahedral geometry. The Au complex achieves a coordination number of four with two N and two Cl donors, however, a weak long-range intramolecular axial interaction accounts for the fifth coordination site to make the species pseudo-square pyramidal.
