Palladous chloride is for preparing special catalyst and molecular sieve. It is for formulating surface  active agent in cladding material of non-conductor material. It is also for making gas sensitive element.

Palladium(II) chloride is a kind of analytical reagent too. It can test palladium, mercury, thallium and iodine. Palladium chloride test paper can examine carbon monoxide and cobalt.

Palladium(+2) chloride applies to synthesize semiconductor polymer containing metals. It applies to  acetaldehyde’s catalyst by ethylene method and other palladium catalysts.
