About Acrylonitrile. Acrylonitrile (a.k.a. 2-Propenenitrile, Prop-2-enenitrile, Vinyl Cyanide) is an organic compound, consisting 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 onion-like odor. It is a very reactive compound, due to its high polar nature (arising from the presence of the nitrogen heteroatom) and unsaturation. 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
Commercial Grades. analytical standard (98% minimum purity); technical grade (99% minimum purity); and inhibited (99% minimum purity, 35-45 ppm monomethyl ether hydroquinone inhibitor).
Uses. As a highly reactive chemical, acrylonitrile is employed in the manufacture of surface coatings, paints, adhesives and elastomers.
- Propylene + ammonia (ammoxidation)
- Propane + ammonia (ammoxidation)
