Abstract

Cyanides and hydrocyanic acid are one of the priority pollutants being most toxic. Therefore, it is very important to monitor cyanide concentration with specific and sensitive analytical methods. Some analytical methods for cyanide determination were presented in the last years: spectrophotometer, potentiometer with silver cyanide electrode and titrimetric method. The paper presents original results concerning the spectrometric method and argentometric titration utilization for the measurement of cyanide concentration in some distilled alcoholic drinks from plums, grapes and apricots. The obtained cyanide concentrations vary between 0.0162 and 0.0970 mg/100mL, being under the imposed limits.
