6-Methyl-2-pyridinecarboxaldehyde was used in the synthesis of 1-(10-cyano- and -10-bromo-5H-dibenzo[a,d]cyclohepten-5-yl)-4-[(arylmethylene)amino]piperazines which are compounds that exhibits anticon vulsant properties. 6-Methylpyridine-2-carboxaldehyde is used to produce 1-(6-methyl-pyridin-2-yl)-hexan-1-one with pent-1-ene at temperature of 100°C. This reaction will need reagent 2-amino-3-picoline and catalysts (Ph3P)3RhCl, Cp2ZrCl2.
Soluble in water (750 g/L).
