1,10-Phenanthroline, anhydrous is used as a chelating agent, used as bidendate nitrogen ligands in Heck type reactions as an alternative to phospine ligands. It is widely used as an indicator for alkyllithium reagents and an inhibitor of metallopeptidase enzymes. It is also used in the analysis formulations in end-user industries like food, beverage and pharmaceuticals.
For use as bidentate nitrogen ligands in Heck type reactions as an alternative to phosphine ligands, see: Synlett., 11, 871 (1992).
