Pyridine N-oxide was pyrolysed under flash vacuum pyrolysis conditions to afford pyridine, pyrrole, 2-pyridone, 2-cyanomethylpyridine, and bipyridyls. Phenylpyridine N-oxides gave cyanonaphthalenes and naphthalene other than the above mentioned products. Pyrolysis of 2,6-disubstituted pyridine N-oxides provided the products which were supposed to be derived from the intramolecular oxygen migration.
