Soluble in most organic solvents.


2,2';6',2"-terpyridine is widely utilized in the field of supramolecular chemistry, which is used to manufacture the racks, ladders and grids, helicates, catenanes and dendrimers. It plays an important role as a ligand in coordination chemistry. Its complexes are employed in the oxidation of alcohols, the carbonylation of aromatic compounds and as oxygen-binding molecules. Functionalized terpyridine ligands were used in semiconductors and solar panels. It forms chealate complexes with europium(III) and terbium(III), which is used in protein labelling.


Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
