Pyridoxamine is one of the compounds composing vitamin B6, along with Pyridoxal and Pyridoxine. It is converted to the biologically active form pyridoxal 5-phosphate.

It is based on a pyridine ring, with hydroxyl, methyl, aminomethyl, and hydroxymethyl substituents.

It differs from pyridoxine by the subsitituent at the '4' position. It is sometimes used as 'pyridoxamine dihydrochloride'.

The molar mass of pyridoxine is 168.19 grams.

See vitamin B6 for more information.
