  1. ferrocyanic acid

    Ferrocyanic acid, also known as Hydroferrocyanic acid or Hydrogen hexacyanoferrate(II), is an inorganic compound with the formula [Fe(CN)6](H2O)6. It is a weak acid, which disassociates to form iron(II) ions and cyanide ions in water. Despite containing cyanide ions, it is generally considered non-toxic due to the strong bonding of the cyanide ions to the iron within the compound. However, it can be dangerous if ingested in large quantities or exposed to strong acids. It is typically used in the manufacturing of pigments and other chemicals.
