Chemical Structure

Dipicolinic Acid

Product Introduction:

Dipicolinic acid (pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid or PDC as well as DPA) is a compound that accounts for 5% to 15% of the completely dry weight of bacterial spores.

Pyridine-2,6-dicarboxylic acid naturally exists in bacterial spores, but the content is small, which cannot meet the demand and is not easy to extract.

The structural formula of Dipicolinic Acid is that the carbon atom at the first position on the benzene ring is replaced by a nitrogen atom, and the hydrogen atom connected to the carbon atoms at the second and sixth positions is replaced by a carboxyl group.

Compared with other organic ligands, such as salicylic acid derivatives, orthophenorline ligands and β-diketones, Dipicolinic Acid derivatives have stronger sensitizing luminescence ability.

At the same time, some rare earth complexes of 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid are used as chiral molecules, and more information can be obtained by measuring the circularly polarized luminescence spectrum.

Dipicolinic Acid is a crucial intermediate in pharmaceutical synthesis with a wide variety of uses.

Product Usage:

  • Dipicolinic Acid can be used to prepare 2,6-pyridinedimethanol, 2,6-disubstituted pyridine is a kind of important intermediate in organic synthesis, especially 2,6-pyridinedimethanol has strong applicability.
  • 2,6-Pyridinedicarboxylic acid is an amphiphilic polar metabolite created by numerous bacterial and also fungal types. Dipicolinic Acid was long known as a chelator for many metal ions before it was discovered as a microbial metabolite.
  • The widespread distribution of Dipicolinic Acid in microorganisms makes it an important deduplication criterion in discovery.
  • Dipicolinate reaches high focus (~ 10% w/w) within Bacillus, contributes to heat resistance, as well as is utilized busy as a marker of sanitation performance.
