The free energy of formation of pyridine may be calculated from the entropies and the heats of combustion of pyridine and the elements of which it is composed. To determine the entropy of pyridine at 298.1°K. it was necessary to measure its heat capacity over the temperature range, 90° to 298.1°K., its heat of fusion, and its melting point, the remaining data being available in the literature.
