Abstract: The presence of acetonitrile in the atmosphere was confirmed by results of surface and stratospheric investigations. Stratospheric measurements give mixing ratios typically decreasing with height from 3 ppt at 25 km to 0.5 ppt at 40 km. Measurements at the Earth's surface are less unanimous, although a ground level background mixing ratio of a few times 10 ppt seems realistic. Measurements are compatible with a small global surface source of acetonitrile and a small tropospheric loss. The vertical distribution of acetonitrile presented in consistent with general knowledge of its atmospheric chemistry.
