Phthalonitrile Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

off-white to tan powder

Safety Profile

Poison by ingestion, subcutaneous, and intraperitoneal routes. Questionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of CN- and NOx. See also NITRILES.

Purification Methods

Crystallise the nitrile from EtOH, toluene or *benzene. It has also been distilled under high vacuum. It is steam volatile. [Beilstein 9 H 815, 9 II 602, 9 III 4199, 9 IV 3268.]
