Preparation of 2,2′-azobis(2-methylpropionitrile):

2,2′-Azobis(2-methylpropionitrile), which is used as a foaming agent and a radical polymerization initiator, is produced in a high yield and a high purity, by (1) subjecting a crude 2-amino-2-methylpropionitrile product obtained by the reaction between acetone cyanohydrin and ammonia, to reduced pressure distillation, (2) contacting the resulting purified 2-amino-2-methylpropionitrile product having an ammonia content of 1.5% by weight or less with an aqueous metal hypochlorite solution, and then (3) treating the resulting aqueous suspension of 2,2′-azobis(2-methylpropionitrile) with a reducing agent.

What is 2,2′-Azobis(2-methylpropionitrile)?

2,2′-Azobis(2-methylpropionitrile) (AIBN) is a radical initiator. AIBN solution can be used to initiate radical-induced reactions, specifically free-radical polymerizations. It can be used in:Synthesis of styrene-vinyl pyridine diblock copolymers by reversible addition-fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization.Preparation of silicon oxycarbide glasses.Synthesis of poly [N-(p-vinyl benzyl) phthalimide] for the preparation of titanium dioxide composites for electrophoretic displays.
