About Thiocyanates

Thiocyanates (also known as rhodanides or sulfocyanates) are salts or esters of thiocyanic acid containing the thiocyanate ion, [SCN]-. Isothiocyanates are similar compounds containing the [NCS]- ion. Thiocyanates have numerous applications in the agriculture, oil field, life science, chemical manufacturing, and textile industries; functions include serving as additives or starting materials for the synthesis of certain dyes, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals, chemical tracers, stabilizers, and corrosion inhibitors.
