Cinnamonitrile is also  known as styrene cyanide, is an excellent synthetic spice,it has a strong spicy aroma like cinnamon and floral nuances, colorless or pale yellow viscous liquid, it is chemically stable, light, heat or acid, alkaline etching can not make it change. There are no toxic side effects on the human body, there is no stimulation in contact with skin ,there are no allergic reactions, compared with cinnamic aldehyde.

Usage of Cinnamonitrile:

Cinnamonitrile is an extremely stable nitrile spices, much like the natural aroma of cinnamon.

For the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, perfumes and electronic chemicals.

Preparation Method:

Cinnamic aldehyde reacts with hydroxylamine hydrochloride in the presence of pyridine by the addition-elimination reaction to produce aldehyde oxime, then it boils with toluene azeotropic and after dehydration to generate  cinnamonitrile.
