This video lecture from Aldehydes and Ketones  (F.Sc. second year Chemistry) covers the addition of Hydrogen Cyanide to carbonyl compounds. The reaction follows the mechanism as explained previously in the chapter. It is a base catalyzed Nucleophilic addition reaction which yields cyanohydrins as adducts. The adduct contains a hydroxyl group and cyano- group attached to the same carbon atom. The name of corresponding substrate is then proceeded by cyanohydrins at the end.
