Bidentate ligand employed in transition metal catalysis and aluminum initiated polymerization (inorganic syntheses).
2,2'-Bipyridyl has been used in the preparation of copper(II)-bipyridine-naringenin complex. It may be used in the preparation of 2,2'-bipyridyl hydrobromide.
Ligand for copper in greener oxidation of alcohols under aerobic conditions.Copper(I)/TEMPO-catalyzed aerobic oxidation of primary alcohols to aldehydes with ambient air
Metalloprotease inhibitor, high-affinity chelator of iron; may inhibit Fe2+ containing enzymes at 10−8 M.
2,2'-Bipyridyl also known as 2,2'-bipyridine, is a symmetrical bipyridine commonly used as a neutral ligand for chelating with metal ions. A study of its impact on Petunia hybrida flowers showed that it caused inhibition of senescence.
