I think a communication/language wall is the culprit here.  The local company stocks what they call potassium hexacyanoferrate, but when I ask them about the (III) portion of the nomenclature I begin to loose clarity.  Is there a compound of just plain potassium hexacyanoferrate (no numerals)?  Do you happen to speak Bahasa Indonesian?  Did you happen to write how to make K-Ferricyanide from scratch?
