Palladium(IV) fluoride, also known as palladium tetrafluoride, is the chemical compound of palladium and fluorine with the chemical formula PdF4. The palladium atoms in PdF4 are in the +4 oxidation state.[2][3]


Palladium tetrafluoride has been prepared by reacting palladium(II,IV) fluoride with fluorine gas at pressures around 7 atm and at 300 °C for several days.[1]


PdF4 is a strong oxidising agent and undergoes rapid hydrolysis in moist air.[1]
