Monohydrocarbyl palladium(IV) complexes bearing OH, OH2, Br, and Cl ligands at the metal and supported by facially chelating 1-hydroxy-1,1-bis(2-pyridyl)methoxide were readily prepared in water at 0 °C. These complexes reductively eliminate Ar-X (X = OH, Br, Cl) in water at room temperature in high yield, and the corresponding first-order rate constants kOH, kCl, and kBr are on the same order of magnitude.
