Caustic soda Flakes Pearls / Solid

Chemical Formula: KOH


 

Potassium hydroxide, often known as Caustic Potash, is an inorganic chemical with the formula KOH. KOH is a prototypical strong basic, along with sodium hydroxide (NaOH). It has a wide range of industrial and speciality applications, the majority of which take advantage of its caustic nature and acid reactivity. In 2005, between 700,000 and 800,000 tonnes were produced. KOH is a key ingredient in most soft and liquid soaps, as well as a variety of potassium-based compounds. It's a caustic white solid with high toxicity.

 

Palvi FZE is the most renowned as well as a noted Potassium Hydroxide distributor in Nigeria.

Properties:

The thermal stability of KOH is excellent. Because of its excellent stability and low melting point, it is frequently melt-cast as pellets or rods, which have a small surface area and are easy to handle. Because KOH is hygroscopic, these pellets grow sticky in the air. The majority of commercial samples are approximately 90% pure, with the remaining consisting of water and carbonates. Its disintegration in water generates a lot of heat. Potassium lyes are very concentrated aqueous solutions. Solid KOH does not dehydrate easily, even at high temperatures.

Structure:

Solid KOH crystallises in the NaCl crystal structure at higher temperatures. The OH group is either rapidly or randomly disordered, resulting in a spherical anion with a radius of 1.53 (between Cl− and F− in size). The OH− groups are ordered at room temperature, and the environment around the K+ centres is deformed, with K+−OH− distances ranging from 2.69 to 3.15, depending on the OH group orientation. The monohydrate KOH · H2O, the dihydrate KOH · 2H2O, and the tetrahydrate are all crystalline hydrates of KOH.

 

Palvi FZE is one of the most distinguished as well as prominent Potassium Hydroxide suppliers in Ghana.

Uses:

Potassium hydroxide, like sodium hydroxide, has a wide range of applications, almost all of which rely on its capabilities as a strong chemical base with the capacity to break down a wide range of materials. Potassium hydroxide, for instance, hastens the disintegration of soft tissues, both animal and human, leaving only bones and other hard tissues remaining in a process known as "chemical cremation" or "resomation." This procedure can be used by entomologists to analyse the fine structure of insect anatomy using a 10% aqueous solution of KOH.
