We have prepared two new 2,2'-bipyridine ligands bearing 3-aryl substituents at the 5 and V-positions using Suzuki methodology. The substituents differ only in the presence of a methoxy group or a phenolic hydroxy group. In the solid state a beautiful self-complementary hydrogen-bonded lattice incorporating one water molecule per ligand is formed with the phenolic compound.
