Chemical Information
FooDB Name2,6-Diemthyl-pyridine
Description2,6-dimethylpyridine, also known as 2,6-lutidine or alpha,alpha'-lutidine, is a member of the class of compounds known as methylpyridines. Methylpyridines are organic compounds containing a pyridine ring substituted at one or more positions by a methyl group. 2,6-dimethylpyridine is soluble (in water) and a very strong basic compound (based on its pKa). 2,6-dimethylpyridine is an amine, bready, and cocoa tasting compound found in alcoholic beverages, cereals and cereal products, peppermint, and tea, which makes 2,6-dimethylpyridine a potential biomarker for the consumption of these food products. 2,6-dimethylpyridine can be found primarily in feces. 2,6-dimethylpyridine is a natural heterocyclic aromatic organic compound with the formula (CH3)2C5H3N. It is one of several dimethyl-substituted derivative of pyridine. It is a colorless liquid with mildly basic properties and a pungent, noxious odor .
