Nov 2020. Hydrogen cyanide (HCN) is extremely toxic. At manufacturing plants, extensive monitoring systems are compulsory in areas of production and use. It is extremely difficult to transport and store, so most HCN is produced and used on site and inventories are kept to a minimum. There is no international trade in HCN. The main end use for HCN is adiponitrile, as a precursor for polyamide production, consuming 29% of the HCN produced. The only regions that produce adiponitrile are the United States and Western Europe. Production of acetone cyanohydrin, a precursor for methyl methacrylate production, was the next-largest use for HCN, accounting for 28% of total consumption. The major regions for acetone cyanohydrin production are the United States, Western Europe, and mainland China, although smaller plants can be found in other world regions.
