AlzChem – your reliable and experienced source for Benzonitrile

AlzChem manufactures the product Benzonitrile (BN) in its production plant in Trostberg (Southern Germany). We have registered the product BN according to the REACH regulations.

As manufacturer of a wide range of aromatic and aliphatic nitriles, we are a competent and reliable European source for various types of nitriles like Benzonitrile.

With Benzonitrile we can show our most extensive experience in the field of nitrile production, because this nitrile is above others needed together with our Dicyandiamide (DCD) to produce the product Benzoguanamine. AlzChem is characterized by its backward integrated production network, which is demonstrated by this example and many more.

With high temperature distillation, we achieve the highest quality and purity of our BN – made in Germany, also known under the brand name NITRALZ®.

Our Benzonitrile is available as a liquid with a purity of min. 99.6% (packaging: iso-containers or 200 kg steel drums).

Benzonitrile is primarily used as a raw material for the production of high-performance pigments (HPPs), such as for the red pigment PR 255. Besides this, it is used as an intermediate in agrochemicals as well as a highly regarded approved solvent, because it is very stable and versatile.

Apart from Benzonitrile we also offer further nitriles, which are used as solvents.

Further AlzChem nitriles used as solvents:

  • Butyronitrile
  • Isobutyronitrile
