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. Lab grade chemicals possess reasonable purity but do not comply with any official standard for quality or purity like the ACS Grade, the USP Grade, or the FCC Grade. The Lab Grade is also known as Laboratory Reagent (LR) and Chemically Pure (CP). Our Potassium Carbonate, Anhydrous, Lab Grade is recommended for educational institutes and research labs.
