This article describes the high-yielding and selective oxidatively induced formation of ethane from mono-methyl palladium complexes. Mechanistic details of this reaction have been explored via both experiment and computation. On the basis of these studies, a mechanism involving methyl group transmetalation between PdII and PdIV interediates is proposed.
