Hexaaquairon(II) ion is complexed by three 2,2'bipyridines (bipyridyl ligands) to give stable and intense red coloured iron(II) bipyridyl complex ion and six water molecules.The process is known as "chelation" or the "chelate (crab) effect". Chelate complexes are stable.The intense red colour can be used to monitor the presence of iron(II) ions.
