Hydrocyanic Acid And Its Derivatives Market Challenges
High Toxicity of Hydrocyanic Acid:
The high toxicity of Hydrocyanic Acids such as amino amides, amino acids and cyanohydrins, which are combustible and extremely toxic to the environment and human health, is a major constraint to the growth of the hydrocyanic acid market. Hydrogen cyanide is extremely toxic to humans because it binds irreversibly to the iron atom in hemoglobin, preventing it from transporting oxygen to the body's cells or tissues. It also interferes with ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the body's primary energy storage molecule. According to the Centre for Environmental Health Action (CEHA), a hydrogen cyanide concentration of 300 mg/m3 in the air can be fatal to the human body within 10 minutes. The combination of these two events causes the body's metabolism to stop quickly, resulting in death. Thus, owing to factors such as high toxicity related to hydrocyanic acids, the Hydrocyanic Acid & Its Derivatives industry faces a major challenge.
