Potassium Salt

1. Potassium Acetate

CAS No.: 127-08-2
Potassium Acetate is used as a catalyst in the production of polyurethanes. Potassium acetate can be used as a deicer instead of chloride salts such as calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. It offers the advantage of being less aggressive on soils and much less corrosive, and for this reason is preferred for airport runways. It is, however, more expensive. Potassium acetate is also the extinguishing agent used in class K fire extinguishers because of its ability to cool and form a crust over burning oils.

2. Potassium Carbonate

CAS No.: 584-08-7
Application / Uses preparation
• Potassium carbonate (K2CO3) is a white salt, soluble in water (insoluble in alcohol), which forms a strongly alkaline solution
• Used in soap industries , glass industries , buffering agent
• Use in welding fluxes, and in the flux coating on arc welding rods & other industrial chemicals.

3. Potassium Carbonate

CAS No.: 584-08-7
Potassium Carbonate (K2CO3) is a white salt, soluble in water (insoluble in alcohol), which forms a strongly alkaline solution. It It is used in soap industries , glass industries, buffering agent, in welding fluxes and in the flux coating on arc welding rods & other industrial chemicals.

4. Potassium Chloride

CAS No.: 7447-40-7
The majority of the Potassium Chloride produced is used for making fertilizer, since the growth of many plants is limited by their potassium intake. As a chemical feedstock, it is used for the manufacture of potassium hydroxide and potassium metal. It is also used in medicine, lethal injections, scientific applications, food processing, and as a sodium-free substitute for table salt.

5. Potassium Citrate

CAS No.: 866-84-2
Potassium Citrate is rapidly absorbed when given by mouth and is excreted in the urine. Since it is an alkaline salt it is effective in reducing the pain and frequency of urinationwhen these are caused by highly acidic urine. It is used for this purpose in dogs and cats, but is chiefly employed as a non-irritating diuretic.

6. Potassium Hydroxide

CAS No.: 1310-58-3
KOH and NaOH can be used interchangeably for a number of applications, although in industry, NaOH is preferred because of its lower cost.

7. Potassium Iodide

CAS No.: 7681-11-0
Potassium Iodide is an odorless inorganic compound, occurring as white crystals with 140 grams/100 gm solubility in water. Potassium iodide is used medicinally in tablets and to prepare for thyroid surgery. It is highly applicable to treat high thyroid levels and to protect the thyroid in a radiation emergency. It is also used as an expectorant which may help loosen and break up mucous.

8. Potassium Metabisulfite

CAS No.: 16731-55-8
It is used as a food additive, also known as E224. It is restricted in use and may cause severe allergic reactions in sensitive persons. Potassium is an inhibitor of the polyphenol oxidase enzyme.

9. Potassium Nitrate

CAS No.: 7757-79-1
• As the salt in a salt bridge
• As the main solid particle component of condensed aerosol fire suppression systems. When burned with the free radicals of a fire's flame, it produces potassium carbonate
• As the main component (usually about 98%) of some tree stump remover products. It accelerates the natural decomposition of the stump by supplying nitrogen for the fungi attacking the wood of the stump
• For the heat treatment of metals as a solvent in the post-wash. The oxidizing, water solubility and low cost make it an ideal short-term rust inhibitor
• Also used as mango flower inducer in the Philippines
• As a thermal storage medium. Sodium and potassium nitrate salts are stored in molten state with the solar energy collected by the helio stats at the GEMASOLAR Thermo solar Plant in Spain. Ternary salts, with the addition of calcium nitrate or lithium nitrate, improve the heat storage capacity in the molten salts

10. Potassium Oxide

CAS No.: 12136-45-7
Potassium Oxide (K2O) is an ionic compound of potassium and oxygen. This pale yellow solid, the simplest oxide of potassium, is a rarely encountered, highly reactive compound. Some materials of commerce, such as fertilizers and cements, are assayed assuming the percent composition that would be equivalent to K2O.

11. Potassium Permanganate

CAS No.: 7722-64-7
Potassium Permanganate is one of the principal chemicals used in the film and television industries to "age" props and set dressings. Its oxidising effects create "hundred year old" or "ancient" looks on hessian cloth, ropes, timber and glass.

12. Potassium Silicate

CAS No.: 1312-76-1
A silicate is a compound containing a silicon bearing anion. The great majority of silicates are oxides, but hexafluoro silicate ([SiF6]2) and other anions are also included. This article focuses mainly on the Si-O anions. Silicates comprise the majority of the earth's crust, as well as the other terrestrial planets, rocky moons, and asteroids. Sand, Portland cement, and thousands of minerals are examples of silicates. Some metal cleaning formulations use potassium silicate, which also serves as a corrosion inhibitor. It also finds various uses in the fabrication of welding rods or even of cosmetics.

13. Potassium Sulphate

CAS No.: 7778-80-5
The crude salt is also used occasionally in the manufacture of glass. Potassium Sulphate is also used as a flash reducer in artillery propellant charges. It reduces muzzle flash, flareback and blast overpressure.

14. Potassium Sulphide

CAS No.: 1059-82-5
Potassium Sulphide are formed when black powder is burned and are important intermediates in many pyrotechnic effects, such as senko hanabi and some glitter formulations.

15. Potassium Sulfite

CAS No.: 10117-38-1
Potassium Sulfite (K2SO3) is a chemical compound which is the salt of potassium cation and sulfite anion. As a food additive it is used as a preservative under the E number E225 (INS number 225). It is approved for use in Australia and New Zealand and is not approved in the EU.
