Ferric Phosphate FCC Food Grade
Iron Phosphate; Ferric Orthophosphate
FePO4·xH2O Formula wt, anhydrous 150.82
CAS: [10045-86-0]
Ferric Phosphate occurs as a yellow-white to buff colored powder. It contains from one to four molecules of water of hydration. It is insoluble in water and in glacial acetic acid, but is soluble in mineral acids.
Function: Nutrient.

Identification: Dissolve 1 g of sample in 5 mL of 1:2 hydrochloric acid, and add an excess of 1 sodium hydroxide. A red-brown precipitate forms. Boil the mixture, filter to remove the iron, and strongly acidify a portion of the filtrate with hydrochloric acid. Cool, mix with an equal volume of magnesia mixture and treat with a slight excess of 6 ammonium oxide. An abundant white precipitate forms. This precipitate, after being washed, turns green-yellow when treated with a few drops of silver nitrate.
Assay: Not less than 26.0% and not more than 32.0% of Fe.
Arsenic: Not more than 3 mg/kg.
Fluoride: Not more than 0.005%.
Lead: Not more than 4 mg/kg.
Loss on Ignition: Not more than 32.5%.
Mercury: Not more than 3 mg/kg.
