  • Prussian blue(PB) is a very dark blue, colorfast, non-toxic pigment.
  • The generic name for Prussian Blue is iron blue.
  • It is an inorganic compound with the idealized formula Fe7(CN)18.
  • PB is insoluble, but it tends to form such small crystallites that colloids are common.
  • PB is strongly colored and tends towards black and dark purple when mixed with other oil paints.
  • Prussian blue was first produced as a blue dye.
  • Some of its commonly used names include Hamburg Blue, Paris Blue, bronze blue, celestial blue, cyanine, Haarlem blue, oriental blue, and potash blue.
  • The venerable solid pigment Prussian Blue, FeIII 4- [FeII(CN)6]3·zH2O, is readily prepared by addition of iron(iii) ions to an aqueous ferrocyanide solution.
  • In-situ Mössbauer spectra of an Insoluble Prussian Blue-modified graphite electrode clearly show that 10% of the high spin iron underwent a quasi-reversible electrochemical redox reaction.
  • Prussian blue (PB) particles with the size of ca. 5 nm were synthesized and immobilized in a multilayer structure, as a strategy for the potential development of an amperometric transducer for oxidase-enzyme-based biosensors.
  • Prussian blue analogue Co3[Co(CN)6]2 nanostructures with morphologies of truncated nanocubes (polyhedra), cubes and rods, were synthesized in large quantities by a direct dissociation of the single-source precursor K3[Co(CN)6] in a microemulsion system.
  • Thin film of PB is developed on ITO by the electrochemical reduction of solution containing iron (III) and hexacyanoferrate (III) ions.
  • Gruneberg’ described “siderocytes” as erythrocytes containillg granules which were positive for iron when subjected to the prussian blue reaction.
  • The Prussians blue reactions was founsd useful for the denisonstrahioms of irons ins the celloidinized ashs left after direct nsicroinucineratioms.
  • The pigment Prussian blue, an iron hexacyanoferrate complex compound, was used by the painters in Paris.
  • Prussian blue is effective on removing radiocesium from the body.
  • PB is the coloring agent used in Engineer's blue and the pigment formed on cyanotypes, giving them their name blueprint.
  • The nature of thin Prussian Blue films on platinum substrates can be characterized with in situ Raman spectroelectrochemical technique.
  • Bone marrow aspirations at hospitals are routinely stained by the Prussian blue technique to detect bone marrow iron stores.
  • The mass transport behavior of PB films in anhydrous acetonitrile (AN) and propylene carbonate (PC) solutions has been studied using the cyclic EQCM technique and the electrochemical/ electrogravimetric (EC/EG) impedance technique.
