Hydrogen Cyanide Production Cost Analysis 2020
Hydrogen cyanide, also known as HCN or prussic acid, is a chemical compound, which is a colourless, extremely poisonous, and flammable liquid that boils at slightly above room temperature at 25.6 °C or 78.1 °F. HCN is prepared commercially and is a highly valuable precursor to several chemical compounds ranging from polymers to pharmaceuticals.
Hydrogen cyanide is a linear molecule, which has a triple bond between carbon as well as nitrogen. HCN is a weak acid that partially ionizes in water solution to give the cyanide anion. A solution of hydrogen cyanide in water, as HCN, is coined as hydrocyanic acid. The salts of the cyanide anion are termed cyanides.
HCN has a faint bitter almond-like odour that some people are unable to detect. The volatile chemical compound has been used as inhalation rodenticide as well as for killing whales. Cyanide ions interfere with iron-containing respiratory enzymes. HCN is the precursor to potassium cyanide and sodium cyanide that are used principally in gold as well as silver mining for the electroplating of those metals.
Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Hydrogen Cyanide production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
