Place of Origin:
TOP grade industry grade 99% UN NO 1760 potassium carbonate for ceramics and glass
Potassium carbonate was first identified in 1742 by Antonio Campanella and 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.
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.
