Barium ferrate is the name generally given to the chemical compound of formula BaFeO4. This compound contains iron in the +6 (VI) oxidation state and is sometimes called barium ferrate(VI). It is isostructural with BaSO4 and contains the tetrahedral FeO42− anion. [ Wells A.F. (1984) "Structural Inorganic Chemistry" 5th edition Oxford Science Publications ISBN 0-19-855370-6 ]

Preparation and chemistry

Barium ferrate (anhydrous) can be prepared by precipitation of insoluble BaFeO4 from a solution containing potassium ferrate and barium chloride. [Preparation and Analysis of Barium Ferrate(VI) J. R. Gump, W. F. Wagner, and J. M. Scheyer Analytical chemistry. (1954), 26, 12, 1957 ; doi|10.1021/ac60096a027] Barium ferrate is an oxidising agent and has been proposed as a oxidising reagent for use in organic syntheses.
