saltpetre · saltpeter · potassium nitrate monohydrate
Potassium nitrate is a chemical compound with the chemical formula KNO3. It is an ionic salt of potassium ions K+ and nitrate ions NO3−, and is therefore an alkali metal nitrate. It occurs as a mineral niter and is a natural solid source of nitrogen.
Potassium alum (10043-67-1)
Potassium alum, potash alum, or potassium aluminium sulfate is a chemical compound: the potassium double sulfate of aluminium. Its chemical formula is KAl(SO4)2 and it is commonly found in its dodecahydrate form as KAl(SO4)2·12H2O. Alum is the common name for this chemical compound, given the nomenclature of potassium aluminum sulfate dodecahydrate.
POTASSIUM NITRITE (7758-09-0)
Potassium nitrite (distinct from potassium nitrate) is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula KNO2. It is an ionic salt of potassium ions K+ and nitrite ions NO2−, which forms a white or slightly yellow, hygroscopic crystalline powder that is soluble in water. It is a strong oxidizer and may accelerate the combustion of other materials.
POTASSIUM HYDROXIDE (1310-58-3)
potassium hydroxide tetrahydrate · potassium hydroxide monohydrate · potassium hydroxide, 39K-labeled
Potassium hydroxide is an inorganic compound with the formula KOH, and is commonly called caustic potash. Along with sodium hydroxide (NaOH), this colorless solid is a prototypical strong base. It has many industrial and niche applications, most of which exploit its corrosive nature and its reactivity toward acids.
POTASSIUM SILVER CYANIDE (506-61-6)
Potassium argentocyanide is a white solid used in silver plating, as a bactericide, and in the manufacture of antiseptics. It is manufactured by adding silver chloride to a solution of potassium cyanide.
Potassium dihydrogen phosphate (7778-77-0)
potassium phosphate · K2HPO4 · potassium acid phosphate
Monopotassium phosphate, MKP, (also potassium dihydrogenphosphate, KDP, or monobasic potassium phosphate), KH2PO4, is a soluble salt of potassium and the dihydrogen phosphate ion which is used as a fertilizer, a food additive and a fungicide. It is a source of phosphorus and potassium. It is also a buffering agent.
POTASSIUM PERMANGANATE (7722-64-7)
Potassium permanganate is an inorganic chemical compound and medication. As a medication it is used for cleaning wounds and dermatitis. It has the chemical formula KMnO4 and is a salt consisting of K+ and MnO− 4 ions.
Dipotassium hydrogen phosphate (7758-11-4)
potassium phosphate · potassium dihydrogen phosphate · K2HPO4
Dipotassium phosphate (K2HPO4) (also dipotassium hydrogen orthophosphate; potassium phosphate dibasic) is a highly water-soluble salt which is often used as a fertilizer, food additive and buffering agent. It is a common source of phosphorus and potassium. A dipotassium phosphate solution is formed by the stoichiometric reaction of phosphoric acid with two equivalents of potassium hydroxide: H3PO4 + 2 KOH → K2HPO4 + 2 H2O
POTASSIUM METABISULFITE (16731-55-8)
Potassium metabisulfite, K2S2O5, also known as potassium pyrosulfite, is a white crystalline powder with a pungent sulfur odour. The main use for the chemical is as an antioxidant or chemical sterilant. It is a disulfite and is chemically very similar to sodium metabisulfite, with which it is sometimes used interchangeably.
