3-mercaptopropiononitrile - CAS 1001-58-7
3-mercaptopropiononitrile(CAT: M071716) is a colorless to light yellow liquid with a pungent odor. It is used as a chemical intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and other specialty chemicals. 3-Mercaptopropiononitrile is also used in animal studies as a cysteine-depleting agent, as it irreversibly binds to cysteine.
