The Orion model 94-06 cyanide electrode was evaluated to determine its applicability to water and wastewaters. The calibration curve was Nernstian over the concentration range of 0.26 to 26 ppm, and the slope of the curve was 59 mv per decade change. This work consisted in studying the response of the cyanide electrode to cyanide when this ion was present in solution in both free and complex forms. The results show conclusively that the electrode responds only to free cyanide in solution and not at all to that complexed to metals.
