Acrylonitrile
C3H3N
Analytical standard (min 98% purity); technical grade (min 99% purity); inhibited (min 99% purity ; 35-45 ppm monomethyl ether hydroquinone (inhibitor))
As a highly reactive chemical, acrylonitrile serves as an intermediate to produce a range chemicals, including antioxidants, pharmaceuticals and especially polymers. It is used in the synthesis of acrylic fibers (through simple polymerization), or is copolymerized with styrene, or butadiene and styrene, to yield styrene-acrylonitrile or acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene, respectively. Both thermoplastics have very interesting properties, such as resistance to light and heat, as well as strength. Aside thermoplastics, acrylonitrile is also employed in the manufacture of elastomers, surface coatings, paints and adhesives. It is also a chemical intermediate used in the production of acrylic acid, nylon intermediate adiponitrile, and acrylamide, which is an intermediate in the production of relevant acrylic esters, such methyl acrylate.
Acrylonitrile is used as raw material in the production of the following derivates: acrylic acid; acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene copolymers; polyacrylonitrile; acrylamide; styrene-acrylonitrile copolymers

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.

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 (min 98% purity); technical grade (min 99% purity); inhibited (min 99% purity ; 35-45 ppm monomethyl ether hydroquinone (inhibitor))

Uses. As a highly reactive chemical, acrylonitrile serves as an intermediate to produce a range chemicals, including antioxidants, pharmaceuticals and especially polymers. It is used in the synthesis of acrylic fibers (through simple polymerization), or is copolymerized with styrene, or butadiene and styrene, to yield styrene-acrylonitrile or acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene, respectively. Both thermoplastics have very interesting properties, such as resistance to light and heat, as well as strength.

It is also a chemical intermediate used in the production of acrylic acid, nylon intermediate adiponitrile, and acrylamide, which is an intermediate in the production of relevant acrylic esters, such methyl acrylate.

Raw Materials & Production Processes.

  • Propylene + ammonia (ammoxidation)
