Global Industry Analysis and Forecast for the Acetone Cyanohydrin Market from 2021 to 2031

Acetone cyanohydrin is made by reacting acetone with hydrogen cyanide in the presence of aqueous solutions such as KOH and NaOH. However, the intermediate product is not stable in alkaline solutions, so it is treated with sulfuric acid until its pH reaches 1-2. Acetone cyanohydrin is used as an intermediate for the production of methylacrylates, methacrylamide, methacrylic acid and methacrylonitrile, among others.

Acetone cyanohydrin is majorly consumed in the manufacture of methylmethacrylates (MMA). Methylmethacrylates are used in the production of polymethyl methacrylate. In addition, acetone cyanohydrin finds applications in manufacturing of insecticides, flavoring agents and pharmaceuticals among others.
