Potassium Cyanide: Systemic Agent NIOSH CDC

CHEMICAL DANGERS: Potassium cyanide is water-reactive. Potassium cyanide decomposes on contact with water, humidity, carbon dioxide, and acids, producing very toxic and highly flammable hydrogen cyanide gas. Potassium cyanide solution in water is a strong base; it reacts violently with acid and is corrosive. Potassium cyanide undergoes violent chemical reactions with chlorates and nitrites

The Chemistry of Cyanide Poisoning and Why it Kills

13/01/2015 Sodium cyanide (NaCN), potassium cyanide (KCN), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), and cyanogen chloride (CNCl) are lethal, but thousands of compounds called nitriles contain the cyanide group yet aren't as toxic. In fact, you can find cyanide in nitriles used as pharmaceuticals, such as citalopram (Celexa) and cimetidine (Tagamet). Nitriles aren't as dangerous because they don't

Cyanide poisoning

Cyanide poisoning is poisoning that results from exposure to any of a number of forms of cyanide. Early symptoms include headache, dizziness, fast heart rate, shortness of breath, and vomiting. This phase may then be followed by seizures, slow heart rate, low blood pressure, loss of consciousness, and cardiac arrest. Onset of symptoms usually occurs within a few minutes.
