The friendship between Liebig and Wöhler began in 1825 after they amicably resolved a dispute over two substances that had apparently the same composition — cyanic acid and fulminic acid — but very different characteristics: the silver compound of fulminic acid, investigated by Liebig, was explosive, whereas silver cyanate, as Wöhler found, was not.

The feat of imitating nature in the laboratory was a truly exciting experience — as Wöhler expressed it in his often-quoted letter to Berzelius: "I can no longer, so to speak, hold my chemical water and must tell you that I can make urea without needing a kidney, whether of man or dog; the ammonium salt of cyanic acid is urea."
Next, I exposed the photo to Beck's cyanic wavelength procedure, and found what seemed to be images of a nipple and the Three Stooges.
She was having heart trouble last week, and held up her cyanic hands, saying "How do you think Elizabeth would describe this color?"
Wöhler's in many ways successful studies of cyanic acid gave the same analysis results for this compound as Liebig had found in his analysis of fulminic acid (which at the time made him a world-famous chemist at the age of barely twenty).
Liebig, the results of a research on cyanic and cyanuric acid and on urea.
Poisons of the strychnia and hydro-cyanic acid classes
This may be accomplished by the use of toning baths of ferridcyanide or ferrocyanide, or other metal cyanogen salts, etc., or by either mixing the salts of other metals, as copper or iron, with the cyanic toning baths, or using them in the original solution, or by soaking the paper in them, as in
The doctor looked grave when Mr. Skeats told him the boys had been breathing hydro-cyanic acid gas.
