Potassium Thiocyanate, Lab Grade
Potassium Thiocyanate, also known as Potassium Rhodanide, Thiocyanic Acid Potassium Salt, Kaliumthiocyanat, Rodanca, and Potassium Sulfocyanate, has the chemical formula KSCN or CKNS. It appears as colorless-to-white hygroscopic crystals having free solubility in Water, Alcohol, and Acetone at ambient conditions. When heated to decomposition, it can emit Oxides of Carbon, Sulfur, Nitrogen, and Potassium. 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 Thiocyanate, Lab Grade is recommended for educational institutes, research labs, and commercial applications. Lab Alley is selling its premium quality products online at laballey.com in the United States of America (USA).

Used this to make a deep red color in the first of six beakers in the Jug of Mystery demo from L. Ford’s Chemical Magic for which it worked perfectly!
