Sulfonation of pyridine, 3-hydroxypyridine, and their N-oxides

  • K. M. Dyumaev

The sulfonation of pyridine derivatives and their N-oxides in fuming sulfuric acid was studied. 3-Hydroxypyridine N-oxide is sulfonated in the 2 position of the pyridine ring. A probable scheme for the substitution is proposed.
