I am interested in the manufacturing process of dicyanoacetylene. I understand that in order to produce this, one must heat graphite up to 4,500°F, then pass Nitrogen gas over the sample. I would like to know what method could be used to get graphite that hot? I was thinking about using an induction coil system? Also, what state would dicyanoacetylene be in after this reaction? If I wanted to keep it for an extended period of time, how would I store it. I know these are more then just one, but unfortunately, there are not too many places out there who manufacture/sell this. Do you know of any?
Thank you for your time. I apologize again for the multiple questions.
The reaction takes place at lower temperatures 2700C and an induction furnace would be suitable as would a solar furnace. The dicyanoacetylene comes of as a gas. It is a liquid at room temperaature but is very unstable and can explode to give C and N2. Not a good idea to make or handle this liquid. Which is why not many people sell it!
I hope this helps.
