Hi every one
Is it possible to autoclave KCN with glucose containing minimal medium

I read glucose carmelizes while autoclaving by reacting with amino acids.
So, glucose is always autoclaved separately and added to the required medium
after autoclaving.

Therefore I have a doubt wheather glucose will have any reaction with KCN If
I autoclave it together with the minimal medium?

can u please tell if u have any experience regarding this.

thank you so much in advance

have great days
