Acrylonitrile

We are a distributor of the product Acrylonitrile for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.

Description and uses

Acrylonitrile is a colourless to pale yellow and volatile liquid that is soluble in water and most common organic solvents such as acetone, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, ethyl acetate, and toluene. Synonyms for acrylonitrile are AN, acrylonitrile monomer, cyanoethylene, propenenitrile, vinyl cyanide, and VCN.
Some examples on the use of ACN:

  • co-monomer in the production of acrylic and modacrylic fibers
  • production of plastics, surface coatings, nitrile elastomers, synthetic rubbers, barrier resins, and adhesives
  • chemical intermediate in the synthesis of various antioxidants, pharmaceuticals, dyes, and surface-active agents
  • raw material for acrylic acid, acrylic esters and acrylamide


ACN is a reactive monomer and can readily be polymerized with itself or with other monomers, can form copolymers with other unsaturated compounds, such as styrene and butadiene.
