Diphenyl Acetonitrile [CAS No. 86-29-3]

CAS No 86-29-3
Formula (C6H5)2CHCN
Molecular Weight 193.24
Product ID: RD-001 Category:


Diphenylacetonitrile can be prepared in good yield by the dehydration of the amide of diphenyl acetic acid with phosphorous oxychloride.


Diphenylacetonitrile undergoes anhydrous condensation with ethyl-4-bromo-butyrate. This is followed by its hydrolysis in alkaline medium that is used in the quantitative determination of 3-cyano-3,3-diphenylpropionic acid
