Product Introduction:

Potassium acetate, with the molecular formula C2H3KO2, is the potassium salt of acetic acid. Soluble in water, soluble in methanol, ethanol, fluid ammonia, insoluble in ether and acetone.

In general, it is white crystalline powder, easily deliquescent and has an alkaline odor.

Clinically, potassium acetate is an osmotic diuretic. After taking it, potassium ions are excreted by the kidneys, and at the same time, a large amount of water is brought out to play a diuretic effect.

Potassium acetate in the market has different specifications such as food grade and pharmaceutical grade, and we can provide products with different specifications.

Conditions to prevent during storage space are: moisture, heat, ignition resources, spontaneous combustion objects as well as strong oxidants.

Product Usage:

Potassium acetate is typically utilized as an analytical reagent, and also is likewise used in the pharmaceutical industry and the active ingredients of transparent glass. Test tartaric acid, desiccant, adjust pH value. Also used as buffer, diuretic, fabric and paper softener, catalyst, etc. The main application areas are as follows:

Used as Chemical Reagent

Potassium acetate powder is mainly used in the production of penicillin potassium salt as a chemical reagent. It can additionally be made use of as an anti-icing material, replacing chlorides such as calcium chloride and also magnesium chloride. It is much less erosive as well as destructive to soil, specifically ideal for deicing airport terminal runways, however it is much more costly.

Used as a logical reagent to readjust the pH worth. Used as a desiccant. Manufacture of clear glass. Used in the pharmaceutical market. It can be used to deal with fluoroplastics in the liquified state, 295 ℃/ 30min, to improve the bond efficiency of the surface area. Also used as dehydrating agent, buffer.

The Role in Food

Used as a food additive (preservation and acidity control). It is a component of a fire extinguisher. Made use of in ethanol rainfall of DNA. For preservation as well as fixation of organic tissues, it can be utilized in combination with formaldehyde. Potassium acetate can be prepared by acid-base neutralization of potassium hydroxide or potassium carbonate with acetic acid.

Food grade potassium acetate is used for cardiac or renal edema and also for hypokalemia. When used as an electrolyte supplement, it is primarily used as an alternative to potassium chloride for large-volume intravenous injection of potassium in body fluids.

Medical Use

As a society tool for Penicillium in the pharmaceutical sector, potassium acetate is utilized as a basic material in the manufacturing of cortisone acetate, hydroprednisolone acetate, dexamethasone acetate, betamethasone, and also fucoidone acetate.

Used as a Catalyst

Potassium acetate solution is a catalyst that has catalytic effect on the trimerization of isocyanate to form polyisocyanurate. It can be used together with other catalysts to meet various rigid foam casting and spraying processes. It has fast foaming, fast gelation, etc. Features.

It can also catalyze the response of CTBN incurable carboxyl as well as epoxy teams.
