Description

Product Description

    • It closely resembles sodiumhydroxide in its chemical properties and has similar uses, e.g., in making soap, in bleaching, and in manufacturing chemicals, but is less widely used because of its higher cost
    • It is prepared chiefly by electrolysis of potassium chloride; commercial grades of it sometimes contain the chloride as well as other impurities. The chemical compound potassium hydroxide , is a metallic base
    • It is very alkaline and is a "strong base", along with sodium hydroxide , lithium hydroxide , calcium hydroxide , barium hydroxide and strontium hydroxide . A toxic and highly corrosive chemical used to make soap, in bleaching, and as a paint remover
    • Pure potassium hydroxide forms white, deliquescent crystals
    • It is commonly called caustic potash
    • For commercial and laboratory use it is usually in the form of white pellets
    • It closely resembles sodium hydroxide in its chemical properties and has similar uses, e.g., in making soap, in bleaching, and in manufacturing chemicals, but is less widely used because of its higher cost
    • This technique can create pyramids and regularly-shaped etch pits for uses such as microelectromechanical systems.
    • A strong base, it dissolves readily in water, giving off much heat and forming a strongly alkaline, caustic solution
    • It is prepared chiefly by electrolysis of potassium chloride; commercial grades of it sometimes contain the chloride as well as other impurities. A compound composed of one potassium cation and one hydroxide anion
    • It is toxic if ingested or inhaled, is a strong caustic, and will corrode tissue. Uses of Potassium Hydroxide In agriculture , potassium hydroxide is used to correct the pH of acidic soils
    • It can also be used as a fungicide or even an herbicide . As an alternative to Caustic Soda in the production of biodiesel. It is a major industrial chemical used as a base in a wide variety of chemical processes
    • It occurs as white, deliquescent crystals in a variety of forms, such as lumps, pellets, or flakes
    • This type of compound is also used in washing powders, some denture cleaners, non- phosphate detergents , and drain or pipe cleaners. A very significant use of KOH in terms of significance to the layperson is that alkaline batteries use an aqueous solution of KOH as an electrolyte
    • Some uses of KOH include acrylate ester copolymer coating, defoaming agents used in the manufacture of paper , saponifying oils for liquid soap, formulation aid for food, pH control agent, polyethylene resins, textile processing and as a catalyst in reactions like the production of biodiesel . Other uses include in veterinary medicine in disbudding calves horns and to dissolve scales and hair; in human medicine , to diagnose fungal infections and as a wart and cuticle solvent; manufacture of cleansers
    • It is commonly called caustic potash
    • Thus, potassium hydroxide helps to power flashlights, smoke detectors, and other battery-powered household items.It is also an anisotropic etchant of silicon , exposing octahedral planes
