Abstract

Developments in the chemistry of 2,6-di(pyrazol-1-yl)pyridine (1-bpp) and 2,6-di(pyrazol-3-yl)pyridine (3-bpp), their derivatives and their complexes are surveyed, with emphasis on the last eight years. Particular advances include the synthesis of multi-functional spin-crossover switches; the incorporation of emissive f-element podand centres into biomedical sensors; the self-assembly of a variety of functional soft materials and surface structures; and, the use of 3-bpp complexes in catalysis.
