Acetonitrile is a widely used, polar aprotic organic solvent. Commonly used in the manufacture of spinning fibers and in lithium batteries. It can be used in the recrystallization of steroids and as a solvent for non‐aqueous titrations, as well as a non‐aqueous solvent for inorganic salts. In analytical chemistry, acetonitrile is utilized in the HPLC analysis of small organic compounds.
