About Acrylonitrile. Acrylonitrile (a.k.a. 2-Propenenitrile, Prop-2-enenitrile, Vinyl Cyanide) is an organic compound which consists of a vinyl group linked to a nitrile, with worldwide production of more than 10 billion pounds per year. It is a colorless, volatile liquid with an onion-like odor. It is a very reactive compound, since it is polar (due to the presence of the nitrogen heteroatom) and unsaturated. In the absence of a hydroquinone inhibitor, it polymerizes spontaneously, when exposed to light, heat or in the presence of a strong alkali.
Chemical Formula. C3H3N
Uses. Intermediate to the production antioxidants, pharmaceuticals and especially polymers, insecticides.
- Propylene + ammonia (ammoxidation)
- Propane + ammonia (ammoxidation)

Derivatives. Acrylic acid; acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymers; polyacrylonitrile; acrylamide; styrene-acrylonitrile copolymers.
Methodology. The chemicals pricing data Intratec provides its customers with is obtained from the collection/refining of foreign trade data officially reported by the respective countries. Usually, such information is reported by governmental agencies and/or institutions related to foreign trade, or by statistical surveys conducted by countries/organizations.
