Sodium cyanide UPSC NOTE

 Why in News

  • The Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended the imposition of anti-dumping duty on sodium cyanide (NaCN) imported from China, the European Union, Japan and Korea

  • The revised definitive anti-dumping duties on the import of sodium cyanide, originating in or exported from these countries, is for a period of five years

Directorate General of Trade Remedies (DGTR)

  • It is the apex national authority under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry for administering all trade remedial measures including anti-dumping, countervailing duties and safeguard measures.

    • If a company exports a product at a price lower than the price it normally charges on its own home market, it is said to be “dumping” the product. 

    • The WTO Agreement does not regulate the actions of companies engaged in “dumping”. 

  • Its focus is on how governments can or cannot react to dumping — it disciplines anti-dumping actions, and it is often called the “Anti-dumping Agreement”


  • DGTR provides trade defence support to the domestic industry and exporters in dealing with increasing instances of trade remedy investigations instituted against them by other countries

Sodium cyanide

  • It is a white, water-soluble solid. 

  • Cyanide has a high affinity for metals, which leads to the high toxicity of this salt. 

  • It is a moderately strong base.


Sodium cyanide 

  • It is used in the extraction of gold and silver from their respective ores, in electroplating and the heat treatment of metals, and in making insecticides, dyes, pigments, and bulk drugs, etc.
