The chemistry, industrial usage, general toxicity and experimental use of methacrylonitrile are briefly reviewed. Methacrylonitrile, a reactive, unsaturated and methylated aliphatic nitrile, has industrial applications in a variety of organic processes related to the polymer industry. Its general toxic effects are primarily related to the release of cyanide and formation of reactive metabolites containing a double bond between carbon 2 and 3. Methacrylonitrile has been given by a variety of… CONTINUE READING
