Cyanogen

CAS RN:460-19-5

Reactivities / Incompatibilities

Contact /with dichlorine oxide/ causes ignition or explosion.
... Dicanogen /will/ ... ignite in fluorine at ambient temp ... .
Liquid oxygen gives an explosive mixture when combined with liquid cyanogen.
Cyanogen is decomposed by fluorine gas at ordinary temperatures with the production of a white flame.
Cyanide may react with carbon dioxide in ordinary air to form toxic hydrogen cyanide gas /Cyanide/
Addition of cyanides to a molten nitrate bath (or vice versa) will result in an explosion. /Cyanides/
Violent explosion occurs if cyanide salt is melted with nitrite salt. The melt explodes if cyanide plus chlorate or nitrite is heated to 450 deg C. /Cyanides/
Contact with acids and acid salts causes immediate formation of toxic and flammable hydrogen cyanide gas. ... /Cyanides/
Acids, water, strong oxidizers, (e.g., dichlorine oxide, fluorine) (Note: Slowly hydrolyzed in water to form hydrogen cyanide, oxalic acid, or ammonia).
