Character: It's white or almost white, crystalline powder or colourless crystals, freely soluble in water, practically insoluble in anhydrous ethanol.

Product Description

Potassium plays a vital role in maintaining human health: it plays an important role in maintaining the body's electrolyte balance and thus participates in the activation of nerve impulses throughout the nervous system. These impulses regulate muscle contractions, heartbeat reflexes, and many other physiological effects, including the prevention of high blood pressure.

Refined (pharmaceutical grade) potassium chloride is used as the main ingredient in the preparation of intravenous fluids to correct and maintain the correct electrolyte balance in the body. It is used as an oral rehydration salt, as well as in the treatment of potassium deficiency.

Pharmaceutical Grade Potassium Chloride


The compound potassium chloride (KCl) is a metal halide salt consisting of potassium and chlorine. In its pure state, it is odorless and has the appearance of white or colorless glassy crystals with a crystal structure that splits easily in three directions. Crystals of potassium chloride are face-centered and cubic. Historically, potassium chloride was known as "potassium chloride". This name is still occasionally encountered because of its use as a fertilizer. Depending on the mining and recovery process used, the color of potash varies from pink or red to white. White potassium, sometimes referred to as soluble potassium, is usually higher in analytical content and is mainly used in the manufacture of liquid ferments; KCl is used in medicine, scientific applications and food processing.
