This category is for compounds containing the cyanide anion, CN− and for HCN and its inorganic derivatives.
The term cyanide is sometimes used to refer to covalently-bonded organic compounds of the form R−C≡N, but current advice is to call these compounds nitriles, so they belong in Category:Nitriles.
However, where R is not a carbon atom but another element such as silicon, the compound may be correctly called a cyanide even though it is for the most part organic.
