The surface properties of Ni and Cu hexacyanoferrates were investigated by the inverse gas chromatography method. Retentions of 10 organic compounds were measured at zero surface coverage in the temperature range 80 to 95 C. The gas/solid partition coefficients and the related thermodynamic data of adsorption (standard free energy change, standard state enthalpies, and entropy changes) also at zero surface coverage were determined. The dispersive component of free surface energy of both hexacyanoferrates, at investigated temperatures, was calculated. The surface acid/base properties were also evaluated using polar adsorbates and the results obtained indicate that nickel hexacyanoferrate is more acidic than copper hexacyanoferrate.
