The title compound, C9H9N5, is slightly twisted from planarity, with a maximum deviation of 0.0285 (13) Å from the pyridine plane for the C atom bearing the amino group. The cyano groups are on different sides of the pyridine plane, with C- and N-atom deviations of 0.072 (3)/0.124 (4) and -0.228 (4)/-0.409 (5) Å from the pyridine plane. In the crystal, N - H⋯N and C - H⋯N hydrogen bonds connect the molecules into zigzag chains running along the c axis. 2012.
