Bromoacetonitrile was used in the synthesis of 1-cyanomethyl-1,1-dimethylhydrazinium bromide. It is used as an alkalyting agent for the nitrogen phosphorus detector.

Phenols can be protected (K2CO3, acetone) as their cyanomethyl ethers which can be cleaved by hydrogenation of the nitrile: Tetrahedron Lett., 34, 7567 (1993).
The Reformatsky-type reaction with cyclohexanone is more successful in the presence of a Zn/Ag couple than with the conventional Zn-Cu couple: Synth. Commun., 19, 2355 (1989). Good yields of ß-hydroxy nitriles have also been achieved from aldehydes and ketones using Zn and TMS chloride: Tetrahedron Lett., 31, 2205 (1990). The condensation with aldehydes can also be mediated by active Ni: Tetrahedron Lett., 26, 155 (1985). The reaction with aldehydes in the presence of Zn and tri-n-butylphosphine gives ɑß-unsaturated nitriles directly: Synth. Commun., 20, 3277 (1990).
