With monobasic acids relatively simple carboxylate salts are
formed. Iron(II) formate crystallizes as the green dihydrate; the white acetate
Fe(OCOCH3)2.4H20 is very soluble in water with some hydrolysis, the solution being
§ 184.1307b(a) Ferrous carbonate (iron(II)carbonate, FeC03) is an odorless, white solid prepared by treating solutions of iron (II) salts with alkali carbonate salts. This substance is insoluble in water, but soluble in dilute acids.
Ferrous Carbonate is a nutrient and dietary supplement that is a
source of iron.
A nuisance dust.
ChEBI: A carbonate salt in which the counter-ion is iron in the +2 oxidation state.
White solid; odorless; gray solid.
Decomposes yielding CO2 + FeO at 2C. Insol in
2O; sol acids to give CO2; sol in H2O saturated
2 to give Fe(HCO3)2 which then oxidizes.
