Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
225° dec.
Slightly soluble in water.


3,6-Di-2-pyridyl-1,2,4,5-tetrazine may be used in the preparation of mononuclear, cyclic tetranuclear, and 1-D helical-chain Cu(II) complexes, via metal-assisted hydrolysis. It also may be used in the synthesis of novel cyclic tetranuclear ZnII complex and synthesis of substituted 3,6-di(2-pyridyl)pyridazines, via inverse electron demand Diels Alder reaction with alkenes or alkynes.


Stable under recommended storage conditions. Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
