Potassium Cyanide

Product Name: Potassium cyanide

Formula: KCN


Potassium cyanide is a compound with the formula KCN. This colorless crystalline salt, similar in appearance to sugar, is highly soluble in water. Most KCN is used in gold mining, organic synthesis, and electroplating. Smaller applications include jewelry for chemical gilding and buffing.


Potassium cyanide is an important chemistry’s raw material and used for mineral floatation and extraction of gold and silver, and for electric plating and steel heating treatment. Especially in the metal-surface plating, compared with sodium cyanide, it gives more efficient current, wider range of current density and average electric plating. Therefore it’s the first choice for electric plating of such precious metals as gold, silver, etc. It’s popular in copper-, zinc-electrical plating as well. Potassium cyanide is also as a reagent of analytical chemistry and widely used in manufacturing organic cyanide and pharmaceutical products, camera, acrylonitrile, Plexiglas, etching, lithography, mildew-removal agent, and so on.
