General description

Acetonitrile is a water-soluble polar organic solvent with exceptional solubilizing power, unique chromatographic properties, and ideal spectroscopic characteristics.

Application

Acetonitrile is used as a:
  • Mobile phase solvent in reversed-phase chromatography.
  • Rinsing solvent for Solid-phase extraction (SPE) column.
