Sodium Cyanide
NaCN
metal tracing grade (99.9% minimum purity); reagent grade (97% minimum purity); commercial grade (73 to 75% minimum purity); 10/30% (w/v) aqueous solution; granular form (0.1 to 5 mm size); molded briquets (15 to 40 g); and cylindrical tablets (20 to 40 g).
Due to its high affinity for metals, Sodium Cyanide is mainly used in the mining industry, in the extraction of gold and silver from ores and in ore flotation techniques. To a lesser extent, it is used in other applications such as electroplating; insecticide; rodenticide; in metal cleaning; dyes and pigments manufacturing; and synthesis of iron blues.

Sodium Cyanide (a.k.a. NaCN) is an inorganic salt, extremely toxic to humans, due to its binding with the Fe3+ ion in the hemoglobin, disabling the use of oxygen by the cells. It is a white cubic crystalline solid also known as white cyanide, and has been the metal cyanide with the greatest commercial importance. This salt has a role as an inhibitor of many metabolic processes and is used as a test reagent for the function of chemoreceptors.
