thiocyanate

 [thi″o-si´ah-nāt]
the S=C=N anion or a salt or ester containing this ion. Thiocyanate is produced in the metabolism of cysteine and detoxification of cyanide and is excreted in the urine.

thi·o·cy·a·nate

(thī'ō-sī'ă-nāt),
A salt of thiocyanic acid.
Synonym(s): rhodanate, sulfocyanate

thiocyanate

S=C=N– Toxicology A salt of thiocyanic acid that is a breakdown product of cyanide, which is ↑ in smokers, Pts receiving nitroprusside, and victims of smoke inhalation. See Cyanide.

thi·o·cy·a·nate

(thī'ō-sī'ă-nāt)
A salt of thiocyanic acid.
