Potassium hydroxide, a common inorganic base, is a white powder or flake solid at room temperature. Similar to sodium hydroxide in nature, it is strongly alkaline and corrosive. It is easy to absorb water in the air and deliquesce. It absorbs carbon dioxide to form potassium carbonate, which is slightly soluble in ether. When dissolved in water, alcohol, or treated with acid, a large amount of heat is generated.
1. Used for electroplating, engraving, lithography, etc.
2. Used as raw materials for potassium salt production, such as potassium permanganate, potassium carbonate, etc.
3. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is used to produce potassium borohydride, spironolactone, saganol, testosterone propionate, progesterone, vanillin, etc.
4. In light industry, it is used to produce potassium soap, alkaline battery and cosmetics (such as cold cream, snow cream and shampoo).
5. In the dye industry, it is used to produce vat dyes, such as vat blue RSN lamp.
6. Used as analytical reagent, saponification reagent, carbon dioxide and water absorbent.
7. In the textile industry, it is used for printing and dyeing, bleaching and mercerization, and is widely used as the main raw material for the manufacture of man-made fibers and polyester fibers, as well as melamine dyes.
8. It is also used for metallurgical heating agent and leather degreasing.
In the export of potassium hydroxide by sea, potassium hydroxide is classified as category 8 dangerous goods because it is a corrosive solid. Its dangerous goods information includes:
