Prussian blue (PB), [Fe2+(CN)6]3·xH2O, has been used as a pigment for three centuries. It has a prototypical haxacyanometallic face centered cubic structure, with the Fe coordinating the nitrogen atoms and the Fe to the carbon, resulting in Fe−NC−Fe−CN−Fe linkage. The separation between the Fe ions corresponds to an a = 1.031 nm. A similar compound, soluble Prussian blue, (KFe [Fe2+(CN)6]) contains potassium ions in alternate interstitial sites (Scheme 1). PB analogues have unique and… CONTINUE READING
