Sodium ferrocyanide, the sodium salt of harmonization compound. Sodium ferrocyanide is also known as yellow prussiate of soda. The yellow crystal is soluble in water and impenetrable in alcohol. Sodium ferrocyanide is a chemical stabilizer and are known as E535 in the European Union. Sodium ferrocyanide is added to food grade and road salt as an anticaking agent. The anticaking agents are placed in powdered products for the ease of packaging, consumption, and transport.
The compound when combined with iron, converts into a dark blue pigment called Prussian blue. Which are used as stabilizer for coating on welding rods. In the petroleum industry, sodium ferrocyanide is used for elimination of mercaptans. Sodium ferrocyanide is produced industrially from, ferrous chloride, hydrogen cyanide, and calcium hydroxide. Sodium ferrocyanide is complex cyanides and belong to the ferrocyanide salt and are mostly used for anti-caking. The compound is approved by WHO and is authorized in food for human consumption by the parliament and council directive on food additives other than colors and sweeteners.
