[1,1'-Bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene]palladium(II) dichloride is an palladium complex containing the iron-containing dppf ligand. Commercially available, this compound is popularly used for palladium-catalyzed coupling reactions.

Commercially available, this compound may be prepared from dppf and nitrile complexes of palladium dichloride:[1]

dppf + PdCl2(RCN)2 → (dppf)PdCl2 + 2 RCN (RCN = acetonitrile or benzonitrile)
