Pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid is used in the preparation of dipicolinato ligated lanthanide and transition metal complexes. It acts as a chelating agent for chromium, zinc, manganese, copper, iron and molybdenum. Its calcium-dipcolinic acid complex is used to protect deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) from heat denaturation which enhances the DNA stability. It plays an important role as a marker for the effectiveness of sterilization.
