Information on Ferric Ammonium Citrate Green

Ferric Ammonium Citrate Green is Inorganic compound. Ferric Ammonium Citrate Green is a Green crystalline powder with slight Ammonia odour. It is freely soluble in water. The green product is more readily reduced by light than the brown. The product should be stored in tightly closed container away from the source of heat & light.

Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Ferric Ammonium Citrate Green

The main raw material of Ferric Ammonium Citrate Green is Citric Acid. Citric Acid is available in two forms i.e. Anhydrous & Monohydrate. Citric Acid is produced by fermentation process in which a carbohydrate source is utilized such as corn based starch and sugar beet molasses. Fermentation yields a crude purity product which requires further refining. One refining technique utilities a precipitation process, this process first uses lime to produce calcium citrate solids, this is then treated with sulphuric acid which produces a partially purified soluble citric acid and calcium sulphate as a by-product. Another technique used is solvent extraction. These processes produce streams which require demineralization by ion exchange.
Ferric Ammonium Citrate Green is prepared by treating Ferric Hydroxide in a solution of Citric acid & Ammonia.
