ac·e·to·ni·trile

(as'e-tō-nī'tril),
Methyl cyanide; a colorless fluid of aromatic odor, soluble in water and alcohol.

acetonitrile

(as?e-to-ni'tril, a-set'o) [ aceto- + nitrile]
Methyl cyanide, CH3CN, an ingredient of some commercially available nail care products. When ingested, it produces a toxic reaction similar to cyanide poisoning. The onset is delayed 9 to 12 hr or more. It is also found in the urine of cigarette smokers. Treatment for poisoning is the same as for cyanide poisoning.
See: cotinine; cyanide poisoning

The addition of tetra-butylammonium salts (TBAX: X=F, Cl, [H.sub.2]P[O.sub.4], CN, AcO, and Cl[O.sub.4]) to solutions of compounds 1-4 in acetonitrile results in changes in both absorption and fluorescence spectra (Figures 4 and 5, Table 2).
Si-NPs were successfully prepared by chemical etching method and suspended in various solvents to investigate the impact of solvents (DMSO, DMF, ethanol, benzene, hexane, C[Cl.sub.4], chloroform, acetonitrile, etc.) on optical properties of Si-NPs.
The pretreated samples were mixed with 15 mL of 1% TCA and 2 mL of acetonitrile, and then 10 mL of ethyl acetate was added.
Although several matrix-specific methods are reported here, it is noteworthy that a simple, modular QuEChERS method was developed for analyzing pesticides in animal products with various contents of fat, attaining adequate recoveries that could make it a good option for routine sample screening; this method involved extraction of the sample in acetonitrile, followed by hexane extraction in the presence of a QuEChERS salt and cleanup by SPE ([C.sub.18]) [10].
HPLC-grade methanol, acetonitrile, hexane, and pesticide-grade ethyl acetate were purchased from Tedia (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), while HPLC-grade dichloromethane was from Merck (Darmstadt, Germany).
