Theoretical studies on rutile type Palladium Dioxide were carried out with the aim of analyzing structural and electronic properties at ambient condition using the first principle calculation based on density functional theory. Within the framework of density functional theory, we used full potential linearized augmented plane wave method(FP-LAPW) in Wien 2k code. The exchange and correlation effect is treated with generalized gradient approximation (GGA) using the Perdew, Burke and Eruzeroff form. The charge density plots, density of states and band structure are plotted and discussed.
