Description

Applications
Butyronitrile serves as an intermediate in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries. It is also involved in the preparation of n-butylamine, butanamide and butyric acid. It acts as a precursor to the poultry drug amprolium. Further, it reacts with phosphorochloridic acid diethyl ester to prepare (1-cyano-propyl)-phosphonic acid diethyl ester. It is also employed to study the effect of stereochemical factors on intervalence charge transfer. In addition to this, it is used in electrolyte composition in dye-sensitized solar cells.

Solubility
Miscible with benzene, alcohol, ether and dimethylformamide. Slightly soluble in water.

Notes
Incompatible with strong acids, strong bases, strong oxidizing agents and strong reducing agents.
