Hydrogen Cyanide
Hydrogen Cyanide (also known as HCN and Prussic Acid) is a chemical precursor used in the production of several industrially relevant compounds, such as adiponitrile for nylon production, methyl methacrylate for polymer manufacturing and sodium cyanide for the production of methionine (a feed additive). HCN is mainly produced though the Andrussow process. The method involves reacting ammonia, natural gas and air over a platinum catalyst to form HCN. Alternatively, HCN can be produced by the BMA process, which uses ammonia and natural gas only.

Ammonia Production from Natural Gas - Cost Analysis | Ammonia E21A
It presents the economics of Ammonia production from natural gas in the USA using a process similar to KBR Purifier process. In the process examined, syngas is initially produced from natural gas. The syngas is purified through several steps into a stream that contains mostly nitrogen and hydrogen which is then fed to the ammonia synthesis section.
