What Is 2-Amino-6-Methylpyridine?

Purification Methods:

Crystallize it three times from acetone and dry it supporting vacuum at ca 45o. Alternatively, keep it in contact with NaOH beads for 3 hours, with rare shaking, decant and fractionally distill it. It also recrystallizes from CH2Cl2 on an extension of pet ether.


Crystallize 2-Amino-6-methylpyridine three times from acetone and dry it supporting vacuum at ca 45o. Alternatively, keep it in connection with NaOH pellets for 3 hours, with rare shaking, decant and fractionally distill it [Mod et al. J Phys Chem 60 1651 1956]. It also recrystallizes from CH2Cl2 on an extension of pet ether. [Marzilli et al. J Am Chem Soc 108 4830 1986, Bilstein 22/9 V 210.] Uses of 2-Amino-6-Methylpyridine is Intermediate.
