Hylite Zinc might be a zinc plating agent.

See: http://www.osmose.com.au/hylite711.html

And: http://www.metalquip.co.za/products_3.htm

As I recall this process involves cyanide. I also think you change the color of what you are plating be adding a "dye". It could be as simple as that.

On the other hand if I wanted to make Zyklon B and didn't want anyone to know what I was doing, I might just add those things to the list to provide "plausible deniability".

Thanks. This is fast getting beyond my 10th grade chemistry class, so I appreciate the context.

Please remember that the Iraqis created the biggest scheme of deception to fool the UN. After reading thousands of pages in these documents I can safely conclude that this joke they called the "Iraqi National Monitoring Agency" was created to overwhelm the UN with documents and papers showing how good and sincere the Iraqi are in "self monitoring" any material or activity related to WMD where on the other hand they were still active in many WMD programs. I just cannot believe how did the UN considered NaCN as a dual use material and allowed the Iraqi to import it where it can easily produce HCN when mixed with acids. The incompetence is shocking.

While I've got no idea about what the chemicals could or could not be used for separately or in combination, I'm just curious about this being an order for a military factory. Are there military applications for this stuff that doesn't involve weaponry?
