The name was suggested by Prussian blue, the earliest known compound of cyanogen.
cyanogen was separated, and identified from the lungs and the liver.
A well-defined salt radical, containing sulphur united to the elements of cyanogen.
But the trace of cyanogen in the air was merely a coincidence, Haynes.
If cyanogen be given the chance it will take unto itself an atom of hydrogen, producing the deadly hydrocyanic or prussic acid.
It is, however, principally used as a source of cyanogen and hydrocyanic acid.
Such is the "cyanogen hypothesis" of the origin of life, advocated by able physiologists such as Pfluger, Verworn, and others.
And tanks of cyanogen were so arranged that the poison gas could be sent gushing into the cage at any time.
cyanogen, a compound which in combination behaved very similarly to chlorine and iodine, was isolated in 1815 by Gay Lussac.
Hydrocyanic, hī-dro-sī-an′ik, adj. noting an acid formed by the combination of hydrogen and cyanogen—also Prussic acid.
