2,2'-bipyridine acts as a bidentate chelating ligand which form complexes with transition metal ions and shows antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral activity. It is used for the colorimetric determination of iron as well as oxidation reduction indicators to confirm the presence of ferrous ion in soils. It forms complexes with ruthenium and platinum, exhibit intense luminescence, which may have practical applications. Copper(I) bipyridine complexes involved in the oxidation of alcohols under aerobic conditions.
Reagent for iron. Chelating ligand.
For use as an alternative to phosphines in Heck type reactions, see: Synlett, 871 (1992).
Complex with Chromium(VI) oxide, 12522, has been used in a mild selective oxidation of alcohols to aldehydes and ketones: Acta Chem. Scand., 25, 1125 (1971)./n
