# What are the products of the thermal decomposition of potassium cyanate with carbon at elevated temperature?

What are the products of the thermal decomposition of potassium cyanate ($\ce{KOCN}$) with carbon ($\ce{C}$) at elevated temps ($\ce{300^\circ C - 1300^\circ C}$)?

I guess some of the nitrogen is lost and forms something. I'm trying to find out the full equation, but a google search brings up nothing concerning reduction of potassium cyanate with carbon.

$\ce{2KOCN + C ->[\Delta] 2 KCN + CO2}$
• You did not ask for the decomposition of $\ce{KOCN}$ in the first, but for its reaction with carbon at elevated temperature. – Klaus-Dieter Warzecha Mar 18 '14 at 5:26
