Aminoacetonitrile (IUPAC name 2-Aminoacetonitrile) is a (toxic) liquid at room temperature and standard pressure. It is a precursor of the simplest amino acid, glycine, which it forms by reaction with liquid water. It is also an intermediary in the Strecker synthesis of glycine. It was identified in the interstellar medium in 2008.
Although its rotational spectrum has been studied since the 1970s, and modeled explicitly for a search in the interstellar medium in 1990, aminoacetonitrile has only been detected recently in space, in a large molecular cloud Sagittarius B2 (Sgr B2) at the center of the Galaxy (Belloche et al. 2008).
