Sodium Cyanide Production Cost Analysis 2020
Sodium cyanide is an inorganic compound, which appears white in colour and is a water-soluble solid. The chemical has a high affinity for metals, that leads to the high toxicity of this salt. Its primary applications areas are its uses in gold mining, which also exploits its high reactivity toward metals. It is a moderately strong base. When treated with acid, it can form the toxic gas, hydrogen cyanide.
Sodium cyanide is one of the most rapidly acting poison. It is a known potent inhibitor of respiration. It acts on mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase and hence blocks electron transport. This results in decreased oxidative metabolism as well as oxygen utilization. Several commercially crucial chemical compounds are extracted from sodium cyanide, like the cyanuric chloride, cyanogen chloride, and several other nitriles. In organic synthesis, sodium cyanide, which is classified as a strong nucleophile, is used to prepare nitriles that occur widely in many chemicals, like those utilised in pharmaceuticals.
