Salts (1)


hydrogen cyanide (74-90-8)  
Hydrocyanic Acid  ·  Zyklon B
Hydrogen cyanide (HCN), sometimes called prussic acid, is a chemical compound with the chemical formula HCN. It is a colorless, extremely poisonous and inflammable liquid that boils slightly above room temperature, at 25.6 °C (78.1 °F). HCN is produced on an industrial scale and is a highly valuable precursor to many chemical compounds ranging from polymers to pharmaceuticals.
Potassium Cyanide (K(C(15)N))  ·  Potassium Cyanide (K(14)CN)
Potassium cyanide is a compound with the formula KCN. This colorless crystalline salt, similar in appearance to sugar, is highly soluble in water. Most KCN is used in gold mining, organic synthesis, and electroplating.
SODIUM CYANIDE (143-33-9)  
Sodium cyanide is an inorganic compound with the formula NaCN. It is a white, water-soluble solid. Cyanide has a high affinity for metals, which leads to the high toxicity of this salt.
CALCIUM CYANIDE (592-01-8)  
Calcium cyanide also known as black cyanide, is an inorganic compound with the formula Ca(CN)2. It is a white solid, although it is rarely observed in pure form. Commercial samples can be black-gray.
SILVER CYANIDE (506-64-9)  
Silver cyanide is the chemical compound with the formula AgCN. This white solid forms upon treatment of solutions containing Ag+ with cyanide. This precipitation step is used in some schemes to recover silver from solution.
Copper(I) cyanide (544-92-3)  
Copper(I) cyanide is an inorganic compound with the formula CuCN. This off-white solid occurs in two polymorphs; impure samples can be green due to the presence of Cu(II) impurities. The compound is useful as a catalyst, in electroplating copper, and as a reagent in the preparation of nitriles.
Potassium argentocyanide is a white solid used in silver plating, as a bactericide, and in the manufacture of antiseptics. It is manufactured by adding silver chloride to a solution of potassium cyanide.
BARIUM CYANIDE (542-62-1)  
Barium cyanide is a chemical compound with the formula Ba(CN)2. It is synthesized by the reaction of hydrogen cyanide and barium hydroxide in water or petroleum ether. This white crystal reacts with water and carbon dioxide in air slowly, producing highly toxic hydrogen cyanide gas.
Prussian blue (14038-43-8)  
Berlin blue  ·  ferric ferrocyanide  ·  ferrocin
Prussian blue is a dark blue pigment with the idealized chemical formula Fe 7(CN) 18. To better understand the binding situation in this complex compound the formula can also be written as Fe 4[Fe(CN) 6] 3 · xH 2O. Another name for the color is Berlin blue or, in painting, Parisian or Paris blue.
cyanide (57-12-5)  
A cyanide is a chemical compound that contains the group C≡N. This group, known as the cyano group, consists of a carbon atom triple-bonded to a nitrogen atom. In inorganic cyanides, the cyanide group is present as the anion CN−.
Sodium ferrocyanide is the sodium salt of the coordination compound of formula [Fe(CN)6]4−. In its hydrous form, Na4Fe(CN)6·10H2O (sodium ferrocyanide decahydrate), it is sometimes known as yellow prussiate of soda. It is a yellow crystalline solid that is soluble in water and insoluble in alcohol.
Potassium ferricyanide (13746-66-2)  
Potassium ferricyanide is the chemical compound with the formula K3[Fe(CN)6]. This bright red salt contains the octahedrally coordinated [Fe(CN)6]3− ion. It is soluble in water and its solution shows some green-yellow fluorescence.
Gold(I) cyanide (506-65-0)  
gold cyanide  ·  aurocyanide  ·  potassium aurocyanide
