Hydrogen Cyanide
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).

Please send, under separate cover, a sample (bulk) of your particular solvent for use as a reference standard. The bulk sample will be charged the analysis price. Additional analyses and fees may be required to determine the DE for results that do not match a common standard.
:
Reported results reflect elemental analysis of the requested metals. Certain compounds may not be solubilized during digestion, resulting in data that may be biased low.
:
Analyte is referenced in the published method. If more than one published method is cited, the analyte is referenced in at least one of the methods.
