Potassium carbonate 96%low purity high quality just for fertilizer K2CO3
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 (molecular formula: K2CO3), 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.

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.
