Cyanamide is produced by hydrolysis of calcium cyanamide, which in turn is prepared from calcium carbide via the Frank-Caro process.
CaCN2 + H2O + CO2 → CaCO3 + H2NCN
The conversion is conducted on slurries. Consequently, most commercial cyanamide is sold as an aqueous solution.
Cyanamide 50% in agriculture can be used as plant growth regulators, with both pesticidal and bactericidal effects. Directly sprayed on crops, can effectively inhibit the activity of catalase in plants, accelerate plant oxidative pentose phosphate (PPP) circulation, thus speeding up the generation of basic substances in plants, play a role in the regulation of growth. The field efficacy trials showed that It can regulate the growth and increase production of cherries and grapes.
