Cyanide, vapor Sampling & Analysis
Cyanide, vapor is used commercially for fumigation, electroplating, mining, chemical synthesis, and the production of synthetic fibers, plastics, dyes, and pesticides. The gas has a distinctive bitter-almond smell (sometimes described as a musty “old sneaker smell”), but many people don’t detect its odor at all. The odor itself isn’t generally noticed in enough time to provide warning of its hazardous concentrations. It also has a burning taste.
Cyanide, vapor is a systemic chemical asphyxiant. It is a chemical warfare agent. Exposure to humans produces almost immediate fatality, as it interferes with oxygen use in every organ of the body. Any organ that reacts to low-oxygen levels will be immediately affected: central nervous system/brain, cardiovascular system (heart, blood vessels), and the pulmonary system (lungs).
