Potassium Nitrite appears as odorless yellowish-white deliquescent granules or crystalline powder and is soluble in Water at ambient conditions. It is not combustible but can accelerate the burning of other combustible materials. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of Potassium Oxide and is commonly produced on a commercial scale by reducing Potassium Nitrate. 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 Nitrite, Lab Grade, is recommended for educational institutes and research labs.
