About Hydrogen Cyanide:

Hydrogen cyanide, also known as 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. It is prepared commercially and is a highly valuable precursor to several chemical compounds ranging from polymers to pharmaceuticals.
Chemical Formula:

  • HCN


  • Hydrocyanic acid
  • Formonitrile
  • Prussic acid

Molecular Weight:

  • 27.02 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Agricultural products (non-pesticidal)
  • Water treatment products
  • Intermediates
  • Solvents

Production Processes:

  • Production of Hydrogen Cyanide from Methane and Ammonia

Andrussow oxidation, in which methane and ammonia react in the presence of oxygen at around 1200 °C over a platinum catalyst, produces hydrogen cyanide. This is the most widely used method of production.

Supplier Database:

  • Evonik Industries
  • Air Liquide
  • Matheson Tri-Gas Inc
  • Ascend Performance Materials
