2-Vinylpyridine is a pyridine derivative used in the preparation of poly(2-vinylpyridine) via radical polymerization. 2-Vinylpyridine is used to improve effectiveness of protective polymer coatings on metals. It is a reagent for pyridylethylation for new protection method for active hydrogen compounds.. It is also used as basic materials for one of largest-selling plastic, manufacturing pharmaceuticals and bio-compounds.
