Applications
Potassium hexacyanoferrate(II) trihydrate is widely used in anticaking agent for both road and table salt. It is involved in the purification of tin and separation of copper from molybdenum ores. It plays a vital role in the in production of wine and citric acid. In analytical chemistry, it is used to determine the concentration of potassium permanganate. It is in combination with potassium ferricyanide and phosphate buffered solution acts as buffer for beta-galatosidase. Further, it is used as fertilizers for plants.

Solubility
Soluble in water. Insoluble in ethanol and ether.

Notes
Begins to lose water at 600C, anhydrous at 1000C. Incompatible with oxidizing agents and strong acids.
