Acetonitrile (ACN) is a highly polar, volatile, colorless liquid with ethereal odor and is the simplest organic nitrile widely used as a solvent.
The nitrile group constitutes active part of the molecule. It participates in various reactions that lead to number of nitrogen containing organic molecules.
ACN is manufactured on large scale by addition of ammonia in propylene, acrylonitrile being the by-product.
ACN has excellent solubilizing properties. These enable its use as a useful solvent in synthesis and purification processes of distillation and recrystallization.
Commonly occurring uses as solvent are in:
|High pressure liquid chromatographic (HPLC) analysis as an eluent.|
|Butadiene extraction in Petro refineries.|
|Manufacture of insulin, vitamins, amino acids and photographic films.|
|Non-aqueous reactions that employ AlCl3 and PCl3.|
|Manufacture of flame retardants.|
|Extraction of fatty acids from vegetable oil.|
|Chemical intermediate and solvent for perfumes.|
|Catalyst and component of transition-metal complex catalysts.|
|Solvent for DNA synthesis and Peptide sequencing.|
|Solvent for spinning synthetic fibers.|
|Casting and moulding plastics.|
The nitrile group being reactive, ACN acts as a key raw material in production of:

Ferrozine, chemically 3-(2-Pyridyl)-5,6-bis(4-phenylsulfonic acid)-1,2,4-triazine disodium salt, is a water-soluble solid. It is complexometric reagent for detection and estimation of iron.
Sodium thiosulfate is an inorganic compound, typically available as the white or colorless pentahydrate. The solid is an efflorescent (loses water readily) crystalline substance that dissolves well in water.
Sodium tert-butoxide is a stronger base (than primary and secondary alcoholates) and a non-nucleophilic base. It is flammable and moisture sensitive.
2,4-Dihydroxybenzophenone, popular as benzophenone-1 in cosmetic industry, is a highly conjugated bicyclic compound. The conjugation leads to its uses in cosmetic and other industries.
Permethrin is an insecticide in the pyrethroid family. Pyrethroids are synthetic chemicals that act like natural extracts from the chrysanthemum flower.
Succinonitrile is a colorless, low melting solid belonging to dinitrile category of organic compounds. The presence of two cyano groups renders the molecule reactive and thus it undergoes various reactions.
Piperazine is a cyclic ethylene amine with two secondary amine groups. Piperazine is supplied as (anhydrous) Piperazine 99%.
n-Butyllithium is a colorless, organic liquid. It belongs to the organometallic category of compounds. It participates in a variety of chemical reactions and acts diversly as lithiation, alkylation, metalating, and deprotonation agent.
