The crystal structure of the title compound, [Pd(C7H16N2)(2)]Cl-2.3CH(3)OH, has been determined at 180 (2) K in the non-centrosymmetric space group P2(1)2(1)2(1). The structure contains only one crystallographically unique Pd metal centre, showing a slightly distorted square-planar geometry, in which the two chiral (S)-(-)-2-aminomethyl-1-ethylpyrrolidine diamines are coordinated with a trans configuration in order to minimize the steric interaction between neighbouring substituent ethyl groups. [Pd(C7H16N2)(2)](2+) complex cations are strongly hydrogen-bonded to the Cl. anions and methanol molecules, forming supramolecular tapes running along the a axis.
