test for traces of cyanide

The Determination of Trace Levels of Cyanide by Ion ...

2010-12-13  An improved method for the determination of trace quantities of free cyanide has been developed using ionchromatography with electrochemical detection. Detection limits of I Ag/L have been achieved withlinearity of response over the range I to 1000 pg/L. The precision of replicate injections is 0.6 percent,expressed as the relative standard deviation. The method has been applied to the

TESTS FOR PURITY AND PHYSICAL

2017-7-24  No traces of HCN are detected if the operations are conducted in the dark. Types of distillation apparatus currently described in the literature do not seem, to be very efficient. It is not surprising to note that the best quality DNF, if conductivity is accepted as a test of purity, has been obtained by Brummer (Ref. 12), who used only molecular

Ultramicro detection of cyanide and cyano compounds ...

Ultramicro capillary methods for testing of cyanides, thiocyanates, hexacyanoferrates(II) and (III) are proposed. Traces of any of them can be detected in the presence of the others. A mixture containing 4-(2-pyridilazo)-resorcinol and mercuric nitrate has been found to be a very sensitive reagent for hydrogen cyanide.A capillary technique is described for the azide-iodine test.
