Zinc Cyanide Chemical Formula

Zinc cyanide is an inorganic white colored powder with the molecular mass of 117.444 g/mol and chemical formula as Zn(CN)2. It can be easily made by combining the aqueous solutions of cyanide and zinc ions. It is mainly used in the electroplating of zinc. It is also utilized in the synthesis of 2-Hydroxy-1-nafthaldehyde and Mesitaldehyde. It is commonly used alternative to HCN as it serves as convenient, safer, and non-gaseous compound.
