Detailed Product Description:

A colorless flammable liquid with aromatic odor.  Soluble in water, and alcohol.

Commonly used in the manufacture of synthetic pharmaceuticals and as a specialty

solvent, catalyst or intermediate.


This colorless liquid is the simplest organic nitrile.  It is produced mainly as

a byproduct of acrylonitrile manufacture.  It is widely used as a polar aprotic

solvent in synthetic chemistry, and as a medium-polarity solvent in HPLC.



This is ACS Reagent Grade Material with a minimum purity of 99.5%.



Acetonitrile is mainly used as a solvent that is miscible with water and has a

convenient liquid range.  With a dipole moment of 3.84 D, acetonitrile dissolves

a wide range of ionic and non-polar compounds and with its low reactivity, it

does so with minimal complications.


It is widely used in battery applications because of its relatively high dielectric

constant and ability to dissolve electrolytes.  For similar reasons it is a popular

solvent in cyclic voltammetry.  Its low viscosity and low chemical reactivity

make it a popular choice for liquid chromatography.  Acetonitrile plays a significant

role as the dominant solvent used in the manufacture of DNA oligonuleotides

from monomers.


Industrially, it is used as a solvent in the purification of butadiene and in the

manufacture of pharmaceuticals and photographic film.  Acetonitrile is a common

two-carbon building block in organic synthesis as in the production of pesticides

to perfumes.  Its reaction with cyanogen chloride affords malononitrile.



Flammable, dangerous fire risk, moderately toxic by skin absorption and

Inhalation.  Download, read, and understand precautions described in Material
