German term or phrase: cyanovalenansäure
This is from a list of processes and chemical used in the radical polymerization of arcylamides. I don't get even one Google hit on this one.

6. Radical Polymerization
Initiators: Persulphates911,12'30, H2O2912, Di-t-butylperoxide31, 4,4'-Azo to -4- cyanovalenansäure32, AIBN9, Ce-IV33, conducted with or without additives (salts, detergents) in reinen und Mischlösungsmitteln

cyanovaleric acid / cyanopentanoic acid
Explanation:
Sigma Aldrich have a product 4,4′-Azobis(4-cyanovaleric acid) which appears to match (note the 4,4', etc is part of the full name, and it seems you have translated "Azobis" as "Azo to", where it should be left as is.


According to wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4,4'-Azobis(4-cyanopentanoic_acid));

"4,4'-Azobis(4-cyanopentanoic acid) (ACPA) is a free radical initiator used in polymer synthesis."

I think this is your guy!
