Hyperfine interactions in an oxonium ferric orthophosphate

Abstract Mössbauer and structure data of Fe3H15(PO4)8·5H2O are discussed in detail. The small quadrupole interaction in this orthophosphate can be compared with a series of related compounds by use of a point charge model. The quadrupole splitting undergoes a relaxation...

Iron fortification of flour with a complex ferric orthophosphate

The unexpectedly low bioavailability in humans of elemental iron powder prompted us to search for other Fe compounds suitable for Fe fortification of flour that fulfill the two requirements of insolubility in water (due to high water content of flour)...
