The infrared spectrum of potassium ferrocyanide trihydrate has been recorded both in the para and ferroelectric phases. From a combined study of the IR and Raman spectra, it is concluded that there are two sets of water molecules present in the lattice, one set being involved in stronger hydrogen bonding than the other. The ferroelectric transition appears to be associated with an ordering of the water dipoles.
