Applications. Or where it is used?
An iron replacement product is ferric pyrophosphate. Foods contain iron, which you get through your diet. Iron helps your body make red blood cells, which transport oxygen throughout your body. Dialysis patients with chronic kidney disease are given ferric pyrophosphate to treat iron deficiency.
To develop anhydrous iron(III) pyrophosphate, a mixture of iron(III) metaphosphate and iron(III) phosphate is heated under oxygen and the stoichiometric ratio is 1:3. Iron(III) nitrate nonahydrate and phosphoric acid can be used to prepare the reactants.
