Frequently Asked Question about Sodium Cyanide
What is Sodium Cyanide?
Sodium Cyanide is an inorganic compound composed of sodium and cyanide atom. It is a highly poisonous Industrial Chemical, having many industrial applications.
What is Sodium Cyanide used for?
Sodium cyanide is used in a variety of fields. The following are the uses and benefits of this chemical:
- In the mining business, sodium cyanide is primarily used to extract gold and other precious metals.
- Electroplating and surface treatment projects are two other areas where sodium cyanide is useful.
- It can be utilized in the metal hardening industry.
- Sodium Cyanide also can be employed in fumigation.
What is the Chemical Formula of Sodium Cyanide?
Sodium Cyanide has the chemical formula of NaCN.
Is Sodium Cyanide harmful to life?
Since sodium cyanide is a poisonous chemical, it is particularly lethal. It can irritate and burn the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract when encountered or inhaled. The vapors from this chemical irritate the eyes and, if not addressed, can result in severe burns.
Where is Sodium Cyanide found? What does Sodium Cyanide look like?
In labs, 98 percent sodium cyanide may be synthesized by reacting hydrogen cyanide with sodium hydroxide.
Sodium cyanide can appear as white crystalline material or granular powder. The aqueous solution of Sodium Cyanide is colorless and transparent.
What are the Hazardous effects of Sodium Cyanide?
- Under normal conditions, sodium cyanide is stable chemical; however, it is regarded as a dangerous chemical.
- When consumed, sodium cyanide is exceedingly toxic. When inhaled, this chemical is similarly dangerous to human lungs.
- Overall, ingesting or breathing dust/fume or gases is extremely lethal to life.
What are precautionary measures necessary to be taken to handle Sodium Cyanide?
- Even though Sodium Cyanide (BS) is a non-flammable chemical, proper storage and handling should be considered to avoid any unfavorable outcomes.
- Adequate industrial hygiene practices and protective equipment must be worn at all times.
- Sodium Cyanide should be stored in sealed containers when not in use.
- As much as possible, dust generation and accumulation should be avoided.
What will happen if Sodium Cyanide is heated?
Although sodium cyanide is not flammable, it can disintegrate under extreme heat, releasing toxic, flammable, corrosive, and explosive hydrogen cyanide gas.
Is Sodium Cyanide soluble compound?
Sodium Cyanide is soluble in water and many other liquids.
