Sodium cyanide is an organic compound composed of sodium, carbon and nitrogen.

Na + C + N ® NaCN

When sodium cyanide reacts with Fe3+ ions they react with sodium ferrocyanide giving Prussian blue or green colour due to the formation of ferric ferrocyanide

2NaCN + FeSO4 ¾® Na2 SO4+ Fe(CN)2

Fe(CN)2 + 4NaCN ¾® Na4 [Fe(CN)6]

Sodium ferrocyanide

3Na4[Fe(CN)6]+ 4Fe3+ ¾® Fe4 [Fe(CN)6]3 + 12Na+

Ferric ferrocyanide

(Prussian blue)
