1,2-Bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane (Dppe) is a bidentate ligand used typically in coordination chemistry. Dppe is generally a chelating ligand. Common applications include palladium chemistry, but can also include other transition metals such as nickel or iridium.


Dppe can also make a useful replacement for triphenylphosphine in reactions such as Mitsunobu or Staudinger reactions. The corresponding bis(phosphine oxide) by-pdt is more polar than triphenylphosphine oxide, making it often easier to separate from desired products.
