Metastable palladium deficient high-pressure phases with the compositions Pd1–xS2 and Pd1–xSe2 could be obtained via high-pressure/high-temperature syntheses at 7.5 GPa (Pd0.88(1)Se2) and 11.5 GPa (Pd0.94(1)S2) at 1523 K. Compared to the normal-pressure modifications they showed a significant decrease in the c-lattice parameters of Δc/c = 4.4 % (Pd0.94(1)S2) and Δc/c = 10.8 % (Pd0.88(1)Se2) accompanied by under-occupied palladium sites. Single-crystal analyses indicated the space group Pbca with lattice parameters and refinement results of a = 552.02(8), b = 555.11(8), c = 720.20(11) pm, R1 = 0.0562, wR2 = 0.0710 (all data) for Pd0.94(1)S2 and a = 587.93(3), b = 593.16(4), c = 685.99(4) pm, R1 = 0.0139, wR2 = 0.0232 (all data) for Pd0.88(1)Se2. XPS investigations revealed a partial oxidation of Pd2+ to Pd4+, which was observed for the first time in palladium chalcogenide chemistry. Magnetic susceptibility measurements confirmed the expected diamagnetic behavior.
