DID NOT RUN AWAY FROM NACN ie sodium cyanide EXOTHERM
DELTAMETHRIN PROJECT, 1999-2000 Panoli Gujarat India
I Was trying to add acid chloride into an aldehyde at zero degrees cent using PTC conditions and one of ingredient was sodium cyanide, cooling was done by brine
I Did not run away when instead of adding acid chloride in 2 hrs the operator added it on 10 min…………..I waited at the reactor and controlled an exotherm in plant by switching off brine supply to other reactors,
The reaction got controlled at 59 deg cent and luckily was ok…………the exotherm was fearful.
Despite all odds God saves us
