2-Fluoropyridine is a useful precursor of 2,3-disubstituted pyridines which is made by the possibility of metallation at C-3, together with the ready nucleophilic displacement of the activated fluorine. It can also react with thiophene to get 2-thiophen-2-yl-pyridine. It is used in the synthesis of aminopyridines.

The possibility of metallation at C-3, together with the ready nucleophilic displacement of the activated fluorine makes 2-fluoropyridine a useful precursor of a wide range of 2,3-disubstituted pyridines. See, e.g.: J. Org. Chem., 53, 2740 (1988):
