Trichloroacetonitrile (CAS No. 545-06-2), a colorless (yet often brownish) liquid, serves as a versatile industrial workhorse. Its key talent lies in its reactivity: the trichloromethyl group activates reactions at its nitrile group, making it valuable for tasks like fungicide production.


Trichloroacetonitrile, a versatile industrial chemical, finds diverse applications thanks to its dual reactivity. It acts as a precursor in fungicide production but also shines as a reagent in organic synthesis for pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and various research endeavors. Its ability to both accept and donate electrons makes it a key player in reactions like the Overman rearrangement and the synthesis of valuable intermediates.


UniVOOK Chemical’s Trichloroacetonitrile is engineered to offer not only high purity but also exceptional versatility and reliability in a range of chemical synthesis applications.
