Palladium(II) nitrate is the inorganic compound with the formula Pd(NO3)2. It is a red-brown deliquescent solid. As a solution in nitric acid, it catalyzes the conversion of alkenes to dinitrate esters. Its pyrolysis affords palladium oxide.[1]


Palladium nitrate may be prepared by dissolving palladium oxide hydrate in dilute nitric acid followed by crystallization. The nitrate crystallizes as yellow-brown deliquescent prisms. Alternatively, the compound may be obtained by treating palladium metal with nitric acid.
