  • Case Study Of Cyanide

    1206 Words  | 5 Pages

    A BRIEF STUDY ABOUT THE MATERIALIZATION AND TOXICOLOGICAL PROFILE OF CYANIDE I. Overview Problem Statement The purpose of the research is to determine chemical and physical properties of cyanide, to know its applications, and its primary effects to the human body. Introduction The incident about the death of a customer and the owner himself who consumed milk teas from a stall called “ErgoCha” has circulated the news and has spread all over the country. According to some articles, the customers

  • Chemical Functions And Reactions Of Cyanide

    the molecule cyanide. It shows the different types of cyanides and everything about them. Also, it shows the how the human body reacts to cyanide poisoning and how to avoid it. It contains, the places where cyanide is found and the way humans use it to their advantage. It even includes an animal that can consume large doses of cyanide without dying. The science behind the molecule is included. The biological functions and reactions that cyanide takes place in are presented. Cyanide is an extremely

  • Cleaning up a Hydrogen Cyanide Spill

    762 Words  | 3 Pages

    hauling Hydrogen Cyanide overturns. This scenario can prove to be a tricky one, if it is not properly handled. Explaining ways to clean up this spill is best put in step-by-step instructions. The first thing we need to know about is the chemical itself. Hydrogen Cyanide can be extremely dangerous depending on which state of matter it is in. Liquid form is highly absorbable; meaning once it touches a surface (i.e. human skin), it is absorbed at once. From changing Hydrogen Cyanide to gas, it will

  • Cyanide ( Cn- ) Compounds And Deviations Of It

    1209 Words  | 5 Pages

    Cyanide (CN- anion) compounds and deviations of it (HCN, KCN) have been in use for many years as poisons in various settings. In Ancient Egypt plants containing trace concentrations of cyanide have been used as lethal poisons and in World War II HCN was employed with a base to mass exterminate millions of people in Nazi camps. Another historically used method of cyanide poisoning is through gas chambers created by addition of a cyanide salt into an acid to create HCN (g). Although many forms of cyanide

  • Effects Of Cyanide

    1578 Words  | 7 Pages

    any of the many chemicals, cyanide is the one that caught my eye. The reason for this is because I’ve seen many documentaries of serial killers using cyanide and it got me curious about it. I thought about if it can be like a virus, spread to other people once someone is contaminated with it. As I was doing my research, I came across some amazing facts about it and how it can be used. Just like any other chemicals, cyanide has a way to harm large amounts of people. Cyanide can be found as a gas or

  • The Secret Woman: Eva Braun Essay

    1237 Words  | 5 Pages

    How could the woman behind the most deviant man in the history of the world go somehow unnoticed. Was she a possible helping hand in what was the worst genocide in recent history? Eva Braun is quite possibly the second hand definition of the word evil. Was her life really like this? Could a women that lived a seemingly normal life be capable of such heinous crimes? Eva Braun was a “right hand man” to one of history's most notorious criminals, but perhaps in her own light was not quite the woman that

  • What Is Cyanide?

    456 Words  | 2 Pages

    A cyanide is any chemical compound that contains monovalent combining group CN. This group, known as the cyano group, consists of a carbon atom triple-bonded to a nitrogen atom. inorganic cyanides are highly toxic. Organic cyanides are usually generally less toxic, or essentially nontoxic unless burned. In nature cyanides are produced by certain bacteria, fungi, and algae and are found in a number of plants. Cyanides are found in substantial amounts in certain seeds and fruit stones, e.g., those

  • The Use Of Cyanide On The Reefs

    manageable pieces and then taken to the port to be dipped in bleach and put on the market as decoration. Another practice that is used is the use of cyanide on the reefs. This practice is still used today in order to supply the aquarium market with exotic fish that are too hard to catch. How the practice works is the fisherman will take a diluted solution of cyanide and dose the whole reef. If this is done correctly, the fish will not die, but become temporarily paralyzed so they can be picked up in a net

  • Absorption Of Cyanide

    254 Words  | 2 Pages

    Cyanide is a highly toxic compound that needs proper management so as not to endanger the aquatic environment. This research studied the adsorption of cyanide in water on synthesized and calcined Mg/Al hydrotalcite. Synthesis of Mg/Al hydrotalcite with the direct co-precipitation method has been conducted by adding 0.825 mol NaOH to a solution containing 0.25 mol of Mg (NO3)2.6H2O and 0.125 mol of Al (NO3)3.9H2O until pH 10.3. A half portion of synthesized Mg/Al hydrotalcite was calcined at temperature

  • Summary Of The Chemistry Of Ferrioxalate

    1316 Words  | 6 Pages

    The goal of this experiment is to prepare a photosensitive solution and explore its properties. While analyzing the solution, one will learn how to successfully handle these sensitive chemicals and then establish its properties via spectrophotometry. Introduction1 During this experiment, a ferrioxalate solution will be produced from a solution of ferric nitrate that is reacted with oxalic acid. In order to become and oxalate ion, the oxalic acid can donate up to two protons. Ferrioxalate, or tris(oxalate)ferrate(III)
