In inorganic cyanides, the cyanide group is present as the anion CN −. Salts such as sodium cyanide and potassium cyanide are highly toxic. Hydrocyanic acid, also known as hydrogen cyanide, or HCN, is a highly volatile liquid that is produced on a large scale industrially. It is obtained by acidification of cyanide salts. Organic cyanides are usually called nitriles.

Sodium gold cyanide. Sodium cyanide is used mainly to extract gold and other precious metals in mining industry. This application exploits the high affinity of gold(I) for cyanide, which induces gold metal to oxidize and dissolve in the presence of air (oxygen) and water, producing the salt sodium gold cyanide (or gold sodium cyanide) and sodium hydroxide:

A solution of sodium hydroxide is dangerous because of its high pH -- in other words, the high concentration of hydroxide ions. If the solution is brought to neutral pH by titrating it with acid, the hydroxide ions from the sodium hydroxide will be neutralized by hydrogen ions from the acid, and the solution will cease to be dangerous to plants.
