A cyanide is a chemical compound that contains the cyano group (C≡N), which consists of a carbon atom triple-bonded to a nitrogen atom.[1] Most commonly, cyanides refers to salts of the anion CN.[2][3] These compounds are highly toxic.[4] Other kinds of cyanide compounds are far less toxic because they do not release cyanide ions.

Cyanides are isomeric with isocyanides, which have the -N≡C functional group.
