5-Bromo-2-phenylpyridine, 95%


Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
Soluble in ethyl ether.


5-Bromo-2-phenylpyridine is used as a ligand in coordination chemistry and reacts with iridium(III) chloride to get in tris-heteroleptic Iridium(III), which finds application as phosphorescent (triplet) emitters in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) due to its self-emitting nature, fast response, wide viewing angle and low power consumption.


Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong acids and strong bases.
