Succinonitrile - Colorless and Odorless But Highly Toxic

Succinonitrile, also called butanedinitrile, is colorless and odorless waxy solid. It is slightly soluble in water but soluble in ethanol and chloroform. It is mainly used as the solvent to extract aromatic hydrocarbon from petroleum fractions. It is often used in organic synthesis. And it is also used as the lithium-ion battery electrolyte additives which makes the lithium-ion batteries have longer service life. Besides, it is used as the raw material of quinacridone pigment and nylon-4. What's more, it is used as nickel plating brightener, which makes products bright.
