WHAT DOES PRUSSIAN BLUE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Prussian blue

Prussian blue

Prussian blue is a dark blue pigment with the idealized formula Fe718. Another name for the color is Berlin blue or, in painting, Parisian blue. Turnbull's blue is the same substance, but is made from different reagents, and its slightly different color stems from different impurities. Prussian blue was one of the first synthetic pigments. It is employed as a very fine colloidal dispersion, as the compound itself is not soluble in water. It is famously complex, owing to the presence of variable amounts of other ions and the sensitive dependence of its appearance on the size of the colloidal particles formed when it is made. The pigment is used in paints, and it is the traditional "blue" in blueprints. In medicine, Prussian blue is used as an antidote for certain kinds of heavy metal poisoning, e.g., by caesium and thallium. In particular it was used to absorb 137Cs+ from those poisoned in the Goiânia accident. Prussian blue is orally administered. The therapy exploits Prussian blue's ion exchange properties and high affinity for certain "soft" metal cations. Prussian blue lent its name to prussic acid, which was derived from it.
