Cyanide is a potent and rapidly-acting asphyxiant which prevents tissueutilization of oxygen by inhibition of the cellular respiratory enzyme,cytochrome oxidase. Inhalation or ingestion of cyanide produces reactions within a few seconds and death within minutes.

A critical review: general toxicity and environmental fate of three aqueous cyanide ions and associated ligands potassium cyanide, and hydrogen cyanide. The toxicity and fate of cyanide breakdown products, either during treatment or during natural degradation, is poorly understood. Information pertaining to aquatic plant uptake of these.   The critical review of the literature pertaining to the risk assessment of the effects of gold-bearing cyanide tailings solutions on wildlife identifies the following limits of knowledge: 1. the needs for a decision making tool to derive an appropriate cyanide .   Based on the data presented in the literature, it can be concluded that the toxicity of cyanides largely depends on the form of their occurrence (Fig. (Fig.8). 8). The least toxic are complex cyanide compounds in contrast to free ions, which are the most toxic ones (Johnson ; Donato et . icity of wastes to fish, fish food, and the appli cation to waste disposal problems. Section I. Inasmuch as the literature on tox icity is primarily found in publica tions devoted to biology, zoology, fish culture, and wild life, and is in some phases very extensive, the review of literature must be critical and rather comprehensive. Without.

Published indirect evidence indicating that the toxicity of solutions of complex metal cyanides to fish is a function of the concentration of molecular (not ionized) HCN is reviewed. The striking influence of pH on the toxicity of the nickelocyanide complex could be explained only by assuming that HCN is the toxic factor.   Hydrogen cyanide, cyanide anion, and metal cyanide complexes are highly toxic to mammals and other wildlife [65] [66][67].
