  • The Chemistry of Cyanide Poisoning and Why it Kills

    Nov 18 2019 · The cyanide ion CN- binds to the iron atom in cytochrome C oxidase in the mitochondria of cells. It acts as an irreversible enzyme inhibitor preventing cytochrome C oxidase from doing its job which is to transport electrons to oxygen in the electron transport chain of aerobic cellular respiration.Without the ability to use oxygen mitochondria can t produce the energy carrier adenosine
