Abstract: ζ Ophiuchi has been extremely well studied in all wavelength ranges, from the X-ray by all major X-ray satellites (with the exception of XMM-Newton) to the infrared region with Spitzer. Recent spectropolarimetric observations with FORS 1/2 mounted on the 8-m Kueyen telescope of the VLT revealed the presence of a weak magnetic field of the order of 100–150 G. The X-ray properties of ζ Oph are reviewed with the aim of understanding whether the X-ray emission of ζ Oph is dominated by magnetic or by wind instability processes.
