Vitamin B6

Physical and chemical properties

All three compounds in biological systems are converted into each other.

Vitamin B6 is fairly stable vitamin. In highly acidic and alkaline solution vitamin B6 does not lose biological characteristics even when heated. However, under the influence of light, as well as the oxidation, this vitamin is rapidly degraded.

Pyridoxine is well soluble in water, alcohol, and slightly in ether and chloroform.
