The pyridine molecule has been examined by the means of photoelectron and threshold photoelectron spectroscopies. Ionization energies were determined for both outer and inner valence orbitals and new adiabatic values were also resolved. Vibronic structure associated with several states was assigned mainly to be due to C-C stretches and ring bends. Additionally a Rydberg state converging to 7b2 state was ascribed. The data shown here are in a good agreement with previous results and brings some new insights into the electronic structure of this biologically and astrochemically relevant and important molecule.
