What is Acetonitrile?

Acetonitrile is a colorless organic solvent with a boiling point of 82 degrees Celsius. It is the simplest natrile and is widely used both in the laboratory and in industry.

How is acetonitrile made and what is it used for?

Acetonitrile is obtained as a by-product of acrylonitrile production, therefore the trend of acetonitrile production generally follows that of acrylonitrile. The largest producers of this molecule in the United States are INEOS, DuPont, JT Baker Chemical and Sterling Chemicals. In 1992, 14,700 tons of acetonitrile were produced in the United States. In 2008, when the economic crisis led to a sudden drop in demand for acrylic fibers and resins, the production of acrylonitrile and acetonitrile fell and the price of acetonitrile increased fivefold in a few months. Acetonitrile is used as a solvent, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry, but also as a reaction intermediate in the production of many chemicals, from pesticides to perfumes.

It is a solvent of choice for testing an unknown chemical reaction. It is polar and the liquid domain is quite large which makes it handy. It easily dissolves a wide range of compounds due to the presence of non-acidic protons. Acetone exhibits the same properties but is more acidic and reactive towards bases and nucleophiles. In inorganic chemistry, acetonitrile is widely used as a ligand, abbreviated MeCN. For example, it is used in the form of PdCl2(MeCN)2 prepared by refluxing palladium dichloride in acetonitrile. It is a common solvent in cyclic voltammetry due to its relatively high dielectric constant. Acetonitrile is also commonly used in liquid chromatography where it serves as a mobile phase for the separation of molecules.
