I am having problems with an assay I am trying to set up and have discovered 
that formaldehyde rapidly removes cyanide from the reaction.  As cyanide is 
one of my principle components of the assay I would greatly appreciate if 
someone would be able to explain this mechanism to me.

Thanks for the assistance
