Room temperature ESR measurements of quasi-one-dimensional halogen-bridged mixed-metal complexes Ni1-xPdx(chxn)2Br3 single crystals have been carried out to study the competition between SDW (Ni3+) and CDW (Pd2+-Pd4+) states. Both the principal g-values and corresponding linewidths ΔHpp decrease monotonically as x increases, indicating that magnetic Pd3+ ions with smaller g-value than that of Ni3+ are induced from non-magnetic Pd2+-Pd4+ state. The good correlation between g-value and ΔHpp implies that the widths are governed by spin-lattice relaxation time. These results are consistent with the previously observed susceptibility enhancement in the mixed metal chain.
