Hydrogen Cyanide

Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) is a transparent blue liquid or colorless gas with an almond-like odor, a weak acid. Hydrogen Cyanide is polymerizable. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Hydrogen Cyanide. That’s why we suggest one of the following: CHEMLoc, DRUMLoc
