Infobox disclaimer and references

Palladium(II) nitrate is a red-brown solid that is strongly oxidizing (both the palladium(II) ion Pd2+ and the nitrate ion NO3- are strongly oxidizing) and may liberate noxious fumes on doing so. It is a skin and respiratory irritant. It is normally stable under room conditions, but it decomposes under elevated temperatures.
