The synthesis of palladium bis(dithiolene) complex nanosheets (PdDt) possessing a kagome-type lattice structure was performed via interfacial reaction between metal salt in aqueous phase and dithiolato ligand in organic phase. The PdDt nanosheets were characterised by AFM, STM, TEM revealing flat and sheet-like morphology; IR, UV spectroscopy show the corresponding coordination connectivity between metal and ligand, followed by powder X-ray diffraction and SAED, which determined nanosheets to be structurally similar to previously reported nickel bis(dithiolene) complex nanosheets NiDt.
