potassium carbonate power light or dense can be used as a mild drying agent
Dipotassium carbonate (molecular formula: K2CO3), is a White, very
deliquescent powder. It can be dissolved in water to form a strongly alkaline
solution.However, it is insoluble in organic solvents such as ethanol.
It has wide applications.
• It can be used as a drying agent, buffering agent and a source of potassium in
• It can also be used for the manufacturing of fire extinguishers, soap, glass, and
• In addition, it is also used during the production of cocoa powder to balance pH.
• Moreover, it can be supplied to effervescent tablets which can conveniently
provide potassium when there are low levels of potassium in the blood for patients
caused by various kinds of factors.
• In industry, potassium carbonate is manufactured though first performing
electrolysis of potassium chloride to generate potassium hydroxide, followed by
reaction with carbon dioxide to derive the product.
Dipotassium carbonate is produced by the following methods of manufacture:
• Description By electrolysis of potassium chloride followed by exposing the resultant
potassium to carbon dioxide;
• By treating a solution of potassium hydroxide with excess carbon dioxide to
produce potassium carbonate;
• By treating a solution of potassium hydroxide with carbon dioxide to produce
potassium bicarbonate, which is then heated to yield potassium carbonate.

hands before breaks and at the end of workday.
Accidental release measures. Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust
formation. Avoid breathing dust.
If breathed in, move person into fresh air. If not breathing give artificial respiration
Consult a physician. In case of skin contact, wash off with soap and plenty of water.
Consult a physician. In case of eye contact, rinse thoroughly with plenty of water for
at least 15 minutes and consult a physician.
If swallowed, never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Rinse mouth with water. Consult a physician.
Dry. Separated from strong acids.
Storage Conditions Keep tightly closed.
Potassium carbonate is stored in bunkers; the ventilation air must be dry because
of the hydroscopicity of the product.
Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place.
