The conditions that allowed for the first time the growth
of (Per)2[Pd(mnt)2] crystals by electrocrystallisation are
described. The electrocrystallisation is limited by close
proximity of the oxidation potentials of the perylene donor and [Pd(mnt)2]- anion. Depending on the experimental conditions different morphologies can be obtained.
(Per)2[Pd(mnt)2] crystals were found to be mainly of the
â-polymorph with properties comparable to the Cu, Ni
and Pt previously described.
