Applications

3,4,7,8-Tetramethyl-1,10-phenanthroline acts as a metal-chelating agent for transition metal-catalyzed processes. It is also used in the preparation of heteroleptic cationic iridium(III) complex viz. 3,4,7,8-tetramethyl-1,10-phenanthroline-bis[2-(2',4'-difluorophenyl)pyridine]iridium(III) hexafluorophosphate. Further, it is employed as a ligand and forms dinuclear copper(II) hypocrellin B complexes. In addition to this, it plays an important role in the formation of tetraaqua(3,4,7,8-tetramethyl-1,10-phenanthroline-kappa2N,N')zinc(II) thiosulfate complex.

Notes

Incompatible with oxidizing agents.
