Processes for the production of hydrogen cyanide from the reaction of methane with ammonia at temperatures above about 800.degree. C. where the reactor contains a matrix bed of heat resistant materials. The product stream produced within the reactor is preferably routed in a countercurrent fashion to the feed stream entering the reactor to preheat the feed stream and to lower the exit temperature of the product stream. Reactors capable of being used to practice such processes are also provided by the invention.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A process for producing hydrogen cyanide, comprising:(a) directing a gaseous feed stream comprising methane and ammonia to an inlet of a matrix bed reactor, wherein the concentration of the methane and ammonia is at least 50% by volume of the feed stream;(b) directing the feed stream into a plenum within said reactor;(c) directing the feed stream from the plenum through an inside portion of a plurality of feeding tubes, the feeding tubes having an entrance end and an exit end, the feeding tubes extending through a gas impermea...
