Pyridinium aldoximes are used as antidotes in organophosphate poisoning. In the reactivation process they form a complex with the organophosphates, even if the serine active site of acetylcholinesterase enzymes has been inactivated by the organophosphorus compounds. Essential disadvantage of the previously used pyridinium aldoximes is the instability and the toxicity of these complexes. Novel pyridinium aldoximes show more effective detoxifying effects. A general scheme of the synthesis of several novel and very promising pyridinium aldoximes and their basic characteristics are shown in this paper.
