Calcium ferrocyanide is an inorganic metallic compound produce from the ferrous chloride, hydrogen cyanide, and calcium hydroxide. The compound is odorless, yellow crystalline granules which are soluble in water. It is also known by the common name yellow prussiate of lime with INS No. Calcium salt E538. Calcium ferrocyanide is also known as Dicalcium hexacyanoferrate or Calcium hexacyanoferrate. It is used to remove metallic impurities from tartaric, citric, and other acids. It is also used as a stabilizer for the coating on welding rods, and fertilizer for plants.
Other applications of calcium ferrocyanide include removal of mercaptans in the petroleum industry; production of wine and citric acid; fixing, toning, and bleaching in photography; separation of copper from molybdenum ores and purification of tin; and anti-caking agent for both table salt and road salt. In the past, calcium ferrocyanide was produced from organically derived nitrogenous carbon sources, potassium carbonate, and iron filings. Historically, common carbon and nitrogen sources were offal, leather scrap, dried blood, or torrified horn. The global calcium ferrocyanide market is growing at a significant growth over the forecast period, owing to rapid growth of anti-caking in pharmaceutical industry. The Asia-Pacific calcium ferrocyanide market accounts for relatively high revenue share, followed by North America calcium ferrocyanide market, attributed high demand of fertilizers in agriculture.
