Pyridine is a basic heterocyclic organic compound, which is structurally related to benzene, with one methine group (=CH−) replaced by a nitrogen atom.


Pyridine has numerous applications. It is both a versatile solvent and a building block for a variety of other organic compounds.

Pyridine is a starting material in the manufacture of insecticides, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, food flavorings, dyes, rubber chemicals, adhesives, paints, explosives, and disinfectants.

In addition, it is a denaturant for antifreeze mixtures and is sometimes used as a ligand in coordination chemistry.


Pyridine is completely soluble in water, alcohol, ether and benzene. It acts as a scavenger and can catalyse reactions.
