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 presents a large capacity to absorb moisture.
Potassium carbonate is produced by reacting potassium hydroxide with carbon dioxide. As it crystallizes the solution forms potash hydrate, which when heated to more than 200°C creates K2CO3. It is an anhydrous salt and it does taste salty.
It is used for synthetic ammonia decarbonylation.
It is used to prepare food additives such as potassium sorbate, monopotassium phosphate.
Potassium carbonate is commonly used in the production of soap.
It is used as a raw material to manufacture electro tube, TV kinescope, computer display.
It is used as a leavening agent in the food industry.
It is applied in optical glass to improve clarity, strength and refractive index.
It is used in the manufacturing of print ink, polyesters and explosives.
