This study is a comprehensive, multidisciplinary review of the health and environmental effects of cyanide and specific cyanide derivatives. Over 500 references are cited. Cyanide production in the United States was about 700 million pounds in 1975, most of which was used for acrylonitrile production. The most important applications of inorganic cyanides are electroplating and metal treatments. Improper storage, handling, and disposal account for isolated instances of cyanide release to the environment. Tobacco smoke is probably one of the major sources of cyanide exposure to the general public. (ERA citation 04:028112)
