2,6-Lutidine is a liquid product and a semi-volatile compound naturally abundant in tobacco. Its main applications is as reagent in pharmaceuticals and as a solvent in chemical processes.
It is produced by fractionation of crude pyridine base, which is in turn is obtained from coal tar. The co-products are alpha-picoline, gamma-picoline, and 3,4-lutidine. Another industrial process uses formaldehyde, acetone, and ammonia.
