Applications

In peptide and DNA synthesis, HPLC.Acetonitrile is utilized as a polar aprotic solvent in organic synthesis and in the purification of butadiene. It is used as a mobile phase in HPLC and in LC-MS. Aqueous two-phase systems based on acetonitrile and carbohydrates play an important character in the extraction and purification of biomolecules called vanillins.
