Cyanide is a complex chemical that exists in various states throughout nature, encompassing a wide range of substances containing carbon-nitrogen bonds. It has been made famous by endless spy novels and war movies as an eponymous poisoning agent, which reacts rapidly in the body with fatal results. Reality, of course, is more complicated than fiction.
In this article, Inorganic Ventures explores the hazards of cyanide with a focus on the use of cyanide standards for controlling the quality of potable water and in environmental studies.
Cyanide Standards: Where Do Cyanides Enter the Environment?
Some cyanides are present in the food we eat, although strict cyanide standards are imposed by international and regional regulators to ensure that concentrations never exceed safe levels of consumption. Almonds, for instance, contain a naturally-occurring cyanogenic glycoside known as amygdalin which breaks down into cyanide when consumed. Centuries of
