Aug 20, 2013

Parchem – fine & specialty chemicals is the premier supplier of butyl cyanoacetate [CAS 5459-58-5].  Butyl cyanoacetate is also known as cyanoacetic acid n-butyl ester; it is a clear to slightly yellow liquid that is used as a chemical intermediate in several different manufacturing processes.  Additionally, Butyl cyanoacetate is commonly used as an intermediate to manufacture certain active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs)


Butyl cyanoacetate is a versatile chemical intermediate which is used in muilitple industries.  Often, it used in the production of adhesives, coatings, and plastics but it is also found in the manufacturing processes of certain pesticides, dyes, agrochemicals, and surfactants.  Butyl cyanoacetate is not very commonly found in nature – it is prepared industrially by reacting butyl acetate ester with hydrogen cyanide in the presence of a base, often containing tertiary amines or salts of carbonic acids.  The butyl cyanoacetate intermediate is then isolated and used for the production of certain pharmaceuticals and other industrial products.
