Used to prepare dipicolinato ligated lanthanide1   and transition metal2 complexes.
    2,6-Pyridinedicarboxylic acid is an amphoteric polar metabolite produced by   many bacterial and fungal species. Prior to its discovery as a microbial   metabolite, dipicolinic acid had long been recognised as a chelating agent   for many metal ions. Wide distribution of dipicolinic acid among microbes   makes it an important dereplication standard in discovery. Dipicolinic acid   reaches high concentrations (~10% w/w) in Bacillus endospores aiding heat   resistance and is used in laboratories as a marker for the effectiveness of   sterilisation.
