Tris(2-pyridylmethyl)amine (TPA,TPMA) is a tripodal ligand,commonly used to simulate the coordination environment within some proteins.  It is also often used as a copper ligand in Atom Transfer Radical Polymerization (ATRP) for the creation of telechelic polymers. The metal complex based on  this N-containing ligand and cooper is the most often used catalyst in small amounts for ATRP without tedious purification to remove catalyst from final product.
