    • Abstract


      The reaction between pyridine and methyl iodide has been studied in 95 per cent. ethyl alcohol and in acetone. The reaction is faster in the latter solvent at the three temperatures studied. The Arrhenius parameters have been evaluated and the variations discussed in relation to solvent influences.
