Potassium Dichromate, also known as Potassium Bichromate, Dipotassium Dichromate, and Dichromic Acid-Dipotassium salt, has the chemical formula K2Cr2O7 or Cr2K2O7. It appears as orange to red crystalline powder or granules with no odor and a bitter metallic taste. It is partly soluble in Water but insoluble in Alcohol at ambient conditions. On an industrial scale, it is produced by roasting chrome ore with potassium carbonate. It is also preferably produced by reacting sodium dichromate with potassium chloride. Upon exposure, Potassium dichromate can severely irritate the eyes and respiratory tract. It is a known human carcinogen and may cause cancer of the lungs or sino-nasal cavity upon long-term exposure. 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). Lab Alley’s Potassium Dichromate, Lab Grade is recommended for educational institutes, research labs, and commercial applications.
