Cyanoacetylene is an organic compound with formula C
3
HN
or H-C≡C-C≡N. It is the simplest cyanopolyyne. Cyanoacetylene has been detected by spectroscopic methods in interstellar clouds,[2] in the coma of comet Hale–Bopp and in the atmosphere of Saturn's moon Titan.[3]

Cyanoacetylene is one of the molecules that was produced in the Miller–Urey experiment.
