Application

Acetonitrile is relatively inert, due to the strong C-C bond which can only be hydrolyzed under extreme conditions, making it an excellent reaction solvent used in pharma production as a reagent, in the reaction or extraction solvent, starting material to synthesize vitamins A and B1, cortisone, carbonate drugs and some amino acids. Acetonitrile is also used as a solvent in the production of insulin and antibiotics.
Acetonitrile Emprove® Essential is suitable for pharmaceutical application.
