The title compound, trans-[PdCl2{P(C6H 4F)3}2]·C7H8, where P(C6H4F)3 is tris(4-fluorophenyl) phosphine, crystallizes with both molecules in special positions. The trans-[PdCl2-{P(C6H4F)3} 2] molecule lies on an inversion centre, resulting in a distorted trans square-planar geometry. The Pd-P and Pd-Cl distances are 2.3398(12) and 2.2955 (13) Å, respectively, and the P-Pd-Cl angle is 87.58 (5)°. The effective cone angle for the tris(4-fluorophenyl)phosphine group was calculated to be 152°. The toluene molecule lies on a twofold rotation axis.
