Applications
Applications include, electron-deficient aromatics undergo vicarious nucleophilic substitution (VNS) reactions with the anion. Thus the molecule is equivalent to an acetonitrile anion synthon with thiophenate as the leaving group. For example, in the presence of solid NaOH in DMSO, nitrobenzene gives predominantly 4-nitrophenylacetonitrile, along with some of the 2-isomer.

Solubility
Not miscible or difficult to mix in water.

Notes
Store away from oxidizing agents. Keep the container tightly closed and place it in a cool, dry and well ventilated condition.
