2-Aminopyridine is an organic compound with the formula C5H6N2, as a mixture of tautomeric amino and imino isomers with the predominance of the amino form over the imino form (1000:1). 2-Aminopyridine is manufactured using the reaction of pyridine with sodium amide (Chichibabin amination). It is obtained in high yield after the hydrolysis of the intermediate salt.
