In the aminal-type title compound, C10H15N3, the six-membered hexahydropyrimidine ring adopts a chair conformation and the N atoms are pyramidally coordinated. One of the two amido –NH units engages in intermolecular hydrogen bonding with the pyridyl N atom, generating a helical chain running along the b axis of the orthorhombic unit cell.
The title compound is used in Fe(II) spin-crossover materials; see: Bréfuel et al. (2007 ▶).
