The title compound, (PPh4)2[Pd2I6], was obtained unintentionally as the product of an attempted synthesis of a tripalladium sandwich complex. The mol-ecular dimensions are unexceptional and the Pd⋯Pd distance, at 3.8183 (12) Å, is much too long for any Pd - Pd inter-action. Pd has a typical square-planar coordination geometry and the centrosymmetric anion is essentially planar.
