Chemical Properties

Formula Weight
Melting point
ca 187° dec.
Soluble in water (partly), and ethanol (slightly). Insoluble in ether, and low-polarity solvents.


4-(2-Pyridylazo)resorcinol is used in studies of zinc release from Escherichia coli aspartate transcarbamoylase. It is used in cloud point extraction of copper, zinc, cadmium, and nickel in water samples. It is used in the chelate titration of aluminum, mercury, lead and nickel. It is employed as reagent in the colorimetric analysis of gold, cobalt, chromium, iron.


Incompatible with oxidizing agents. Store in cool place. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Store away from oxidizing agents.
