Major Uses

For acrylonitrile (USEPA/OPP Pesticide Code: 000601) there are 0 labels match. /SRP: Not registered for current use in the U.S., but approved pesticide uses may change periodically and so federal, state and local authorities must be consulted for currently approved uses./
... Cyanoethylation of cotton; synthetic soil blocks (acrylonitrile polymerized wood pulp); ... monomer for a semiconductive polymer that can be used like inorganic oxide catalysts in dehydrogenation of tert-butanol to isobutylene and water.
The major end uses of acrylonitrile are acrylic fiber, acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) resins, adiponitrile, acrylamide, nitrile rubbers, and carbon fibers.
Acrylonitrile is used as a monomer for acrylic and modacrylic fibers and whiskers; in copolymers with styrene and butadiene (ABS resins); in the manufacture of adiponitrile; and in nitrile rubbers. Acrylonitrile is no longer used as a fumigant and nitrile resins made with acrylonitrile are no longer used to make beverage bottles.
Manufacture of acrylic fibers. In the plastics, surface coatings, and adhesives industries. As chemical intermediate in the synthesis of antioxidants, pharmaceuticals, dyes, surface-active agents, etc. In organic synthesis to introduce cyanoethyl group. As modifier for natural polymers. As a pesticide fumigant /SRP: former use/ for stored grain. Experimentally to induce adrenal hemorrhagic necrosis in rats.
