Additional information

Aldrich (1990) and CRC (1990) published a relative density value of 0.79 for acetonitrile at 20 deg C. Grayson (1985) and Merck (1989) have published a relative density value of 0.79 for acetonitrile at 15 deg C. Merck (1989) published a relative density value of 0.71 for acetonitrile at 30 deg C. The INEOS MSDS (2008) for high purity acetonitrile provides a relative density value of 0.78 for acetonitrile at 20 deg C.
