Cy*an"o*gen (s?-?n"?-j?n), n. [Gr.
ky`anos a dark blue substance + -gen: cf. F.
cyanogène. So called because it produced blue
dyes.] (Chem.) A colorless, inflammable, poisonous
gas, C2N2, with a peach-blossom odor, so
called from its tendency to form blue compounds; obtained
by heating ammonium oxalate, mercuric cyanide, etc. It is
obtained in combination, forming an alkaline cyanide when
nitrogen or a nitrogenous compound is strongly ignited with
carbon and soda or potash. It conducts itself like a member of
the halogen group of elements, and shows a tendency to form
complex compounds. The name is also applied to the univalent
radical, CN (the half molecule of cyanogen proper), which was one
of the first compound radicals recognized.
&fist; Cyanogen is found in the commercial substances,
potassium cyanide, or prussiate of potash, yellow prussiate of
potash, Prussian blue, Turnbull's blue, prussic acid, etc.
