Potassium Carbonate

Product Description


 K2CO3​  99% potassium carbonate were the main raw material for glass









      Potassium carbonate , also known as potash or pearl ash, appears as a white


powder or as colorless solid crystal with salty taste and deliquescence. 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. For example, it can be used as a drying agent, buffering agent and a


source of potassium in laboratory. It can also be used for the manufacturing of fire


extinguishers, soap, glass, and soften water. 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. It is toxic upon eye contact, inhalation and


ingestion. For rats, it has an oral LD50 being 1870 mg/kg. It has chronic effects on


humans, causing damage to the mucous membranes, skin, and eyes.
