Additions to Pyridinium Rings. I. 1-Methylpyridinium Iodide

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The ultraviolet spectra of aqueous solutions of methylpyridinium iodide have been examined, and Hantzsch's statement that these do not obey Beer's law has been confirmed. Quantitative optical measurements indicate that a new species is present, which is formulated as the product of addition of iodide ion to the pyridinium ring at the 2-position.
