Ferrous Phosphate
Iron(II) phosphate, also ferrous phosphate, Fe3(PO4)2, is a phosphate of iron. It is used in garden chemicals such as moss killers and slug pellets. A phosphate, an inorganic chemical, is a salt of phosphoric acid. In organic chemistry, a phosphate, or organophosphate, is an ester of phosphoric acid. Organic phosphates are important in biochemistry and biogeochemistry or ecology. Inorganic phosphates are mined to obtain phosphorus for use in agriculture and industry.[1][2][3] At elevated temperatures in the solid state, phosphates can condense to form pyrophosphates.
