Product Introduction:

Sodium ferrocyanide is an inorganic compound with the molecular formula Na4Fe(CN)6. Also known as sodium yellow blood salt, it is bright yellow crystals.

It is easily soluble in water, hardly soluble in alcohol, and has no fixed melting point. It starts to be dehydrated when heated to 50°C. It is anhydrous at 81.5°C and decomposes at 435°C. The decomposition products are nitrogen, iron carbide and sodium cyanide.

The reaction of sodium ferrocyanide with silver nitrate will produce a milky white silver ferrocyanide precipitate.

Sodium ferrocyanide reacts with ferrous sulfate to form a white precipitate of ferrous ferrocyanide, which is then oxidized to form cyanide: Prussian blue ferrous.

Under the action of oxidants, sodium hexacyanoferrate will be oxidized to form sodium ferricyanide.

When sodium hexacyanoferrate (4-) burns intensively, nitrogen is completely separated and liberated to produce sodium cyanide and iron carbide.

Product Usage:

  • Sodium ferrocyanide is mainly used as a bleaching and fixing solution for the processing of colored photosensitive materials, colorants, textile processing additives, cosmetic additives, food additives, etc.
  • It is a raw material for manufacturing blue pigments used in paints, paints, and inks.
  • It is also used as a raw material for steel carburizing, leather tanning, metal surface corrosion and red blood cell salt manufacturing.
  • In the pharmaceutical industry, sodium ferrocyanide is used as a de-ironizing agent in the pharmaceutical production process.
  • It can also be used as an additive to melt snow in winter to prevent agglomeration.
  • It can also be used to add salt to prevent caking.
