Product Specifications; Acrylonitrile Gas Mixtures. • Fires involving Acrylonitrile can release toxic gases such as hydrogen cyanide, oxides of nitrogen or carbon monoxide.

Its vapors can easily form explosive mixtures in air. Since these vapors are heavier than air, they can also travel along the ground and be ignited by open flames or sparks which are some distance from the site of release.

Acrylonitrile (CH₂=CHCN) is a toxic, colorless to pale-yellow liquid, harmful to the eyes, skin, lungs, and nervous system. It may cause cancer. Workers may be harmed from exposure to acrylonitrile. The level of exposure depends upon the dose, duration, and work being done. Acrylonitrile plant air pollution control (Research reporting series) [Anguin, M.
