White Potassium Carbonate K2co3 Salty Taste For Activated Carbon Making

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.
