Acetonitrile is an organic compound with a molecular formula of C2H3N. It is a colorless liquid, highly volatile with a special odor similar to ether.It has excellent solvent properties. It can dissolve a variety of organic, inorganic and gaseous substances. It has certain toxicity and is infinitely miscible with water and alcohol. Acetonitrile can undergo typical nitrile reactions,is used to prepare many typical nitrogen-containing compounds,is an important organic intermediate.Acetonitrile can be used as a solvent for the synthesis of vitamin A, cortisone, carbonamine drugs and their intermediates, also used as an active medium solvent for the manufacture of vitamin B1 and amino acids .Alternative to chlorinated solvents. Used in vinyl coatings, also used as extractant for fatty acids, alcohol denaturant, butadiene extractant and solvent for acrylonitrile synthetic fibers.Also has many usages in fabric dyeing, lighting, perfume manufacturing and photosensitive material manufacturing.

Main Application:

Chemical and Instrumental analysis

Acetonitrile has been used in recent years as an organic modifier and solvent for thin layer chromatography, paper chromatography, spectroscopy and polarographic analysis.Cause high-purity acetonitrile does not absorb UV light at 200nm to 400nm, one application being developed is as a solvent for high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), which can make the analytical sensitivity up to grade 10-9.
