Product Description



Potassium carbonate K2CO3 historically used for soap, glass, and ceramic 






      Potassium carbonate (K2CO3) is a white salt, soluble in water (insoluble in


ethanol) which forms a strongly alkaline solution. It can be made as the product of


potassium hydroxide's absorbent reaction with carbon dioxide. It is deliquescent,


often appearing a damp or wet solid. Potassium carbonate is used in the production


of soap and glass.

      Potassium carbonate is the primary component of potash and the more refined


pearl ash or salts of tartar. Historically, pearl ash was created by baking potash in a


kiln to remove impurities. The fine, white powder remaining was the pearl ash. The


first patent issued by the US Patent Office was awarded to Samuel Hopkins in 1790


for an improved method of making potash and pearl ash.


In late 18th century North America, before the development of baking powder, pearl


ash was used as a leavening agent in quick breads.





      Today, potassium carbonate is prepared commercially by the electrolysis of


potassium chloride. The resulting potassium hydroxide is then carbonated using


carbon dioxide to form potassium carbonate, which is often used to produce other


Potassium compounds.

►Safe Storage 


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.
