Pyridine

We are a distributor of the product Pyridine for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.

Description and uses

Pyridine is a clear liquid with an odor that is sour, putrid, and fish-like. Pyridine is a simple heterocyclic aromatic organic compound that is structurally related to benzene, with one CH group in the six-membered ring replaced by a nitrogen atom. Pyridine is obtained from crude coal tar or is synthesized from acetaldehyde, formaldehyde and ammonia.

Pyridine is widely used as a solvent and reagent in organic chemistry and it is also a starting material in the synthesis of compounds used as an intermediate in making insecticides, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, food flavorings, dyes, rubber chemicals, adhesives, paints, explosives and disinfectants. Pyridine is also used as a denaturant for antifreeze mixtures, for ethyl alcohol, and for fungicides, and as a dyeing aid for textiles.
