Chemical Properties:
  1. Ferric ammonium citrate (iron (III) ammonium citrate) is prepared by the reaction of ferric hydroxide with citric acid, followed by treatment with ammonium hydroxide, evaporating and drying. The resulting product occurs in two forms depending on the stoichi- ometry of the initial reactants. (1) Ferric ammonium citrate (iron (HI) ammonium citrate, CAS No. 1332-98-5) is a complex salt of undetermined structure composed of 16.5 to 18.5% iron, approximately 9% ammonia, and 65% citric acid and occurs as reddish brown or garnet red scales or granules or as a brownish-yellowish powder. (2) Ferric ammonium citrate (iron (HI) ammonium citrate, CAS No. 1333-00-2) is a complex salt of undetermined structure composed of 14.5 to 16% iron, approximately 7.5% ammonia and 75% citric acid and occurs as thin transparent green scales, as granules, as a powder, or as transparent green crystals. Supposedly, ferric ammonium citrate is one of the few soluble iron compounds which can be added to dairy products without inducing off-flavors.
  2. Ferric ammonium citrate forms reddish brown flakes or grains, or a brownish-yellow powder. It has a slight ammonia odor. There is also a green form that is odorless.
  3. brownish-yellow to brown powder
  1. Hematinic
  2. For blueprints; in photography.
  3. Ferric Ammonium Citrate is a nutrient supplement that is a source of iron. It is prepared by the reaction of ferric hydroxide with citric acid, followed by treatment with ammonium hydroxide, evaporation, and drying. The resulting product occurs in two forms, i.e., brown with 16.5–18.5% iron and ferric ammonium citrate, green with 14.5–16% iron.
  4. Iron Ammonium Citrate is an anticaking agent used in salt. It is the chemical green ferric ammonium citrate.
