The present paper offers a review of recent work on synthesis, in situ , and applications of few metal hexacyanoferrate nanoparticles with the general formula M4[Fe(CN)6].xH2O where M is transition metal. Five such metal hexacyanoferrates (MHCF’s) compounds derived from Co, Zn, Fe, Cu and Ni with general introduction followed by synthesis, properties and applications of individual hexacyanoferrate nanoparticles have been featured in this article. In addition, the characterization of aforesaid nanoparticles using instrumental techniques like SEM, TEM and XRD have also been discussed.
