Information @ a Glance

  • Sodium thyocyanate  is the chemical compound with the formula NaSCN.
  • This colorless deliquescent salt is one of the main sources of the thiocyanate anion.
  • As such, it is used as a precursor for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and other specialty chemicals.
  • Thiocyanate salts are typically prepared by the reaction of cyanide with elemental sulfur.
  • Sodium thiocyanate is employed to convert alkyl halides into the corresponding alkylthiocyanates.
  • Closely related reagents include ammonium thiocyanate and potassium thiocyanate, which has twice the solubility in water.
  • Silver thiocyanate may be used as well; the precipitation of insoluble silver halides help simplify workup.
  • Treatment of isopropyl bromide with sodium thiocyanate in a hot ethanolic solution affords isopropyl thiocyanate.
  • Protonation of sodium thiocyanate affords isothiocyanic acid.
  • The saxs technique is used to throw light on the morphology of
    phase-separated poly(ethylene oxide) –sodium n thiocyanate [(PEO) NaSCN] mixtures.
  • A temperature-dependent investigation is reported for (PEO) NaSCN.
  • (PEO) NaSCN mixtures show a complex phase behaviour.
  • At the investigated composition, a crystalline complex  is formed between PEO and NaSCN.
  • Sodium thiocyanate, a chemical, is used in the purification of the clotting factors FVIII and FIX.
  • It has been shown to inactivate certain viruses.
  • Thiocyanates can be used in different applications in the textile, in construction industry and each thiocyanate has its own specific applications.
  • High quality crystals of tetragonal lysozyme were grown using constant supersaturation control growth algorithms.
  • Working toward the goal of inducing increased temperature sensitivity in protein crystallization.
  • These results have been extended to low ionic strength systems using salts such as NaSCN and NaNO3 in
    lieu of NaCl.
  • Using the combination of calorimetrically-determined growth rate parameters and constant supersaturation temperature control algorithms.
  • Single crystals have been grown in NaSCN and NaNO3 buffer systems.
  • The improvement in quality of these lysozyme crystals upon employing temperature controlled growth is striking.
  • When compared to crystals grown using more traditional methods these crystals are quite large, and show few, or no, obvious defects.
  • Preliminary crystal quality assessment via X-ray diffraction studies are encouraging.
  • NaSCN, an inhibitor of hydrophobic interactions, reduced the number of cells.
  • Which adsorbed to pellicles to a greater extent than NaCl or KCl when both low and high strepto coccal concentrations were used in assays.
  • Crystals of NaSCN were easily grown from a solution in methanol.
