Sodium Cyanide Price Trend

The impact of Russia's invasion of Ukraine and subsequent global trade sanctions on the prices of the energy and materials used in Draslovka Holdings A.S, a Czech based chemical company,  production processes such as natural gas and ammonia has nearly tripled sodium cyanide production costs in Europe in 2022. This rise, which has been exacerbated by rising shipping costs, has rendered the production of the chemical temporarily uneconomical at current spot prices.

About Sodium Cyanide:

Sodium cyanide is an inorganic compound that has a white appearance and is a water-soluble solid. Because of the chemical's high affinity for metals, this salt is extremely toxic. Its primary applications include gold mining, which takes advantage of its high reactivity to metals. It has a moderately strong foundation. When exposed to acid, it can produce the toxic gas hydrogen cyanide.

Chemical Formula:

  • NaCN


  • Cyanosodium

Molecular Weight:

  • 49.007 g/mol

Industrial Uses:

  • Mining
  • Electroplating

Production Processes:

  • Production of Sodium Cyanide from Hydrogen Cyanide and Caustic Soda; from Sodium Carbonate, Charcoal and Ammonia; from Caustic Soda, Ammonia and Natural Gas

In the process using hydrogen cyanide and caustic soda, sodium cyanide is produced by reacting liquid anhydrous hydrogen cyanide with a sodium hydroxide solution. The finished product is a 30% wt solution of sodium cyanide.
