Potassium Carbonate, also known as Dipotassium Carbonate, Potassium Carbonate, and anhydrous Carbonate of Potash, has the chemical formula K2CO3 or CK2O3. Its anhydrous form appears as odorless colorless deliquescent crystals or white deliquescent powder with an alkaline taste and is freely soluble in Water at ambient conditions. It can be produced as a product of Potassium Hydroxide's absorbent reaction with Carbon Dioxide. It is strongly hygroscopic and presents a large capacity to absorb moisture. An ACS Grade reagent is a chemical that meets the purity requirements of the American Chemical Society (ACS). It is generally equivalent to the Analytical Reagent Grade. For dependable, consistent, and repeatable findings, ACS Grade reagents can be utilized in high-quality research labs. In the United States of America (USA), Lab Alley sells its high-quality Potassium Carbonate, Anhydrous, ACS Grade online at laballey.com.

Questions & Answers

  • Do you sell potassium carbonate 40 lbs used for water softener? If so, do you shop it and can you quote a price. Thank you

    Potassium carbonate (K2CO3) can be used to treat hard water through a process called ion exchange. Hard water typically contains high concentrations of calcium and magnesium ions, which can cause the formation of scale deposits and reduce the effectiveness of soaps and detergents. Potassium carbonate can help alleviate these issues by exchanging its ions for the calcium and magnesium ions present in the water.
