The [Cs.sup.+] elimination performance from the aqueous solution was investigated for manganese and cobalt ferricyanides by the precipitation method [17].
In the manganese ferricyanide (open circles), the simple precipitation procedure eliminates [Cs.sup.+] from the aqueous solution by 4 or 5 orders.
This observation suggests that the precipitates are manganese ferricyanide, [Cs.sub.x]Mn[[Fe[(CN).sub.6]].sub.y].
