Three new palladium compounds, PdSeO<sub>3</sub>, PdSe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>5</sub>, and Na<sub>2</sub>Pd(SeO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>, containing selenium oxoanions of both Se(IV) and Se(VI) have been prepared under mild hydrothermal conditions. PdSe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>5</sub> and Na<sub>2</sub>Pd(SeO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub> both possess one-dimensional structures. Within the structure of PdSe<sub>2</sub>O<sub>5</sub>, [PdO<sub>4</sub>] square planar building blocks are joined together through diselenite, Se<sub>2</sub>O<sub>5</sub><sup>2-</sup>, anions, and form a zigzag chain along the <i>c</i> axis. In Na<sub>2</sub>Pd(SeO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>, [PdO<sub>4</sub>] units are connected by two selenate, SeO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup>, anions, and extend along the <i>a</i> axis to form a [Pd(SeO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>]<sup>2-</sup> chain. Na<sup>+</sup> cations reside in the space between the [Pd(SeO<sub>4</sub>)<sub>2</sub>]<sup>2-</sup> chains and act as counter cations. Unlike above two compounds, PdSeO<sub>3</sub> exhibits a layered structure. In the structure of PdSeO<sub>3</sub>, [PdO<sub>4</sub>] units are connected to each other by corner-sharing and form a zigzag chain along the <i>b</i> axis. The chains are further joined together by tridentate selenite, SeO<sub>3</sub><sup>2-</sup>, anions to form layers in the [<i>ab</i>] plane that stack along the <i>c</i> axis.
