Information on Ferric potassium Oxalate

Ferric potassium Oxalate is a derivative of Oxalic Acid. Ferric potassium Oxalate is freely soluble in water. Ferric potassium Oxalate is a Greenish crystalline powder. It should be stored in tightly closed containers in a Room Temperature. CAUTION – THE PRODUCT IS LIGHT SENSITIVE.

Synthesis / Manufacturing Process of Oxalates

The major raw material to all the Oxalates is Oxalic Acid. Oxalic Acid can be prepared by oxidation of Carbohydrates or Glucose in presence of Nitric Acid & using Vanadium Pentoxide as a Catalyst. It can be also prepared by heating sodium formate in the presence of an alkali catalyst to form sodium oxalate, which can be converted to free oxalic acid when treated with Sulphuric acid. However today Oxalic Acid is commercially prepared from Molasses route from cane molasses or sugarcane syrup.
Ferric potassium Oxalate is manufactured by taking a reaction between Ferric Sulphate, Barium Oxalate & Potassium Oxalate. The above products are reacted in presence of water & heated to give Barium Sulphate as a precipitate. Ferric potassium Oxalate is left behind in the solution. The precipitate of Barium Sulphate is filtered out from the solution. The solution is cooled to give crystals of Ferric potassium Oxalate.
