The structure of palladium(IV) telluride has been determined by single-crystal X-ray methods. The structure type is Cd(OH)2-(CO). PdTe2 has a layered structure with the layers stacking along the  direction. The Pd4+ cations are octahedrally coordinated. The layers are formed by the octahedra sharing edges along the ,  and  directions. The Pd - Te bond distance is 2.693 (2) Å.
