Report Description


Potassium ferrocyanide is defined as potassium salt of the coordination complex, which is soluble in acid and water and is insoluble in alcohols. It is also known as yellow prussiate of potash or potassium hexacyanoferrate (II). Potassium ferrocyanide is manufactured from hydrogen ferrocyanide and potassium hydroxide. It is a fine chemical compound which is yellow in color. It has wide applications in the industry. It is commonly used as a food additive, and for the production dyes & pigments, pharmaceuticals, and iron & steel. It is used in f food, cosmetics, detergents, and several other industries. . It is used as caking agents in various salts. It is used to eliminate copper and iron in production of wine. Potassium ferrocyanide is also used to dye silks and wool is. In the laboratory, potassium ferrocyanide is used to determine the concentration of potassium permanganate, a compound used in titrations based on redox reactions. It is also used in metal extraction to manufacture adhesives, fire retardants, and computer electronics, among others.
