How to turn Fe2O3 into FeO

  • #1
Hello,
For my research I believe I need FeO for one of my compounds, but we only have Fe2O3 powder. Is there anyway i can convert this to FeO without using many other chemicals? I do have access to a furnace that can get up to around 1300-1400 C.

Thanks

Buying FeO or synthesising it by heating Iron(II) oxalate seems to be your best shot. Heating Fe2O3 won't result in FeO unless you can do it in CO atmosphere.

This is tricky as even CO won't probably produce just FeO but rather some mixture of oxides and pure Fe.
