CALCIUM CYANIDE Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Description

Calcium cyanide is used mainly for the extraction or cyanidation of gold and silver ores. It is also used in the production of prussiates or ferrocyanides, in the froth flotation of minerals, in processes where gold complexes are adsorbed on carbon, in the manufacture of stainless steel, as a fumigant and rodenticide, and as a cement stabiliser. The main users of cyanides are the steel, electroplating, mining, and chemical industries. The principal cyanide compounds used in industrial operations are potassium and sodium cyanide and calcium cyanide, particularly in metal leaching operations. Cyanides have been well established in uses as insecticides and fumigants; in the extraction of gold and silver ores; in metal cleaning; in the manufacture of synthetic fibres, various plastics, dyes, pigments, and nylon; and as reagents in analytical chemistry. Calcium cyanide decomposes on heating above 350°C, producing toxic fumes including nitrogen oxides and HCN. It reacts violently with water, moist air, carbon dioxide, acids, and acid salts producing highly toxic and flammable HCN. It reacts violently when heated with oxidising substances causing fire and explosion hazard.

Uses

Fumigant; rodenticide; in stainless-steel manufacture; in leaching ores of precious metals; stabilizer for cement.

General Description

White crystals or powder or gray-black powder (technical grade). Toxic by skin absorption through open wounds, by ingestion, and by inhalation.

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble with evolution of some hydrogen cyanide, a flammable poison gas. Release of gas is much more rapid if acid is present.

Reactivity Profile

CALCIUM CYANIDE gives weakly acidic solutions. Contact with acids causes rapid evolution of hydrogen cyanide. Incompatible with isocyanates, nitrides, and peroxides. May react rapidly with oxidizing agents.

Health Hazard

Inhalation or ingestion causes headache, nausea, vomiting and weakness; high concentrations are rapidly fatal.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Decomposes in fire to give very toxic gases, including hydrogen cyanide.
