Production and Reactions
Treatment with nitric acid gives potassium ferrocyanide and H2. Upon treatment with chlorine gas, potassium ferricyanide converts potassium ferrocyanide:
2 K4 [Fe (CN) 6] Cl2? 2 K3 [Fe (CN) 6] 2 KCI
It is used in the separation of molybdenum from copper ores.
Potassium ferrocyanide is used in the production of wine and citric acid.
It is used in the determination of the compound used in titration in the laboratory environment ferrocyanide potassium, permanganate concentration etc. substances.
Potassium can also be used as fertilizer for ironed plants.
