Chloroacetonitrile is also known as cyanide chloromethane, and is highly toxic in nature.
Therefore, the surface functionalized BNNTs could be greatly dispersed in the solvent of chloromethane, which greatly improves the compatibility with organic solvents.

Other aldehydes in Table 2, such as methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), 2-pentanal, and benzaldehyde, accompanied by chlorobenzene, have significant loadings in the "inert gases" profile due to their longer half-life of the reactions with hydroxyl radicals (several days, or months in the case of bromoform, or chloromethane) and/or slow volatilization rate [42,43].
R-40 (chloromethane or methyl chloride) was a widely-used refrigerant prior to 1930s, but its use was discontinued with the development of safer chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), specifically R-12.
In 1976, the Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer instrument on NASA's Viking landers detected two simple chlorinated hydrocarbons after heating Martian soils for analysis (chloromethane and dichloromethane).
