The invention relates to a novel way to synthesize acrylonitrile from a renewable raw material and more particularly relates to a method for producing acrylonitrile by the ammoxidation of glycerol in gaseous phase. The method can be implemented in a single step, or the glycerol can be previously submitted to a dehydration step. The acrylonitrile thus obtained meets the requirements of green chemistry.
