In preference to pyrrolidine, pyridine moiety of nicotine was alkylated by alkyl halides. This preference seemed to result from the difference of steric hinderance around each nitrogen. The reactivity of pyridine moiety was accelerated by the electronic effect of pyrrolidine. The selective alkylation of pyridine appeared to be available for preparation of artificial antigen of nicotine.
