Adiponitrile Properties


Molecule Structure Image



Adiponitrile is dinitrile, a viscous, colourless liquid. Adiponitrile is mainly used as an intermediate for the chemical synthesis of hexamethylenediamine which is used for the production of polyamide 6-6, raw material for the fiber, plastic and textile industries. Adiponitrile is produced from adipic acid, by dehydration of the diamide, but this route is rarely employed and raw material in hexamethylenediamine production. Adiponitrile is readily biodegradable and has no potential for bioaccumulation. It is not classified as dangerous for the environment.
