- An important secondary amine used as precursor to alkylamines with a aryl-ketone (heteroarylalkyl) moeity when the
reaction is performed in presence of a cyanide as the nitrogen substitution group .
- In organic ketone-amine reactions, piperidine may participate in [hydrogenation of C=N double bounds http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrogenation_of_carbon-nitrogen_double_bonds] where
the N-substituted chiral imine may be converted to a enamine, the tautomeric form of a imine.
