Additional information

No study is available for potassium cyanate. A study with the structural analogue sodium cyanate was conducted.

The study was aborted as it was not technically feasible to measure the biodegradability of sodium cyanate. Within the aborted study, a significant reduction of the TOC was observed after three hours. Based on hydrolysis data, the reduction of TOC is due to abiotic degradation to CO2 and NH3.
