Basic Info

What is Potassium Acetate?

Potassium acetate, also known as potassium ethanoate, has a molecular formula of CH3COOK and a molecular weight of 98.14. It is easily soluble in water, soluble in methanol, ethanol, and liquid ammonia, and insoluble in ether and acetone. At 25ºC, the solubility in water is 2694g/L. Clinically, potassium acetate is an osmotic diuretic. Potassium ions are excreted by the kidney after taking it, and at the same time, a large amount of water is brought out to play a diuretic effect. Food grade potassium acetate is used for cardiac or renal edema, and also for hypokalemia. When it is used as an electrolyte supplement, it is mainly used as a substitute for potassium chloride for large volume intravenous injection of potassium in body fluids.

Potassium acetate is the potassium salt of acetic acid. It is created by the reaction in between potassium hydroxide (such as potassium hydroxide or potassium carbonate) and acetic acid. It is an essential continuous mineral with a selection of physical functions. It is necessary for nerve transmission, heart, skeletal muscle mass and also smooth contraction, power production, nucleic acid synthesis, and also upkeep of blood pressure and regular kidney function. It can be taken as a nutritional supplement and also has the impact of odour-reducing high pressure stopping hypokalemia.

It has numerous other typical applications: (1) as deicing representative; (2) As an artificial additive; (3) Molecular biological applications such as DNA filtration, tissue preservation, fixation as well as mummification; ) is utilized as a catalyst in the manufacturing procedure of polyurethane.

Potassium Acetate Uses

  1. Potassium acetate, crystalline powder, USP, as its name implies, is the potassium salt of acetic acid, which is used as a catalyst for the production of polyurethane, and as a food additive, acidity regulator and preservative in the food industry.
  2. Potassium acetate is used to make glass; As a softening agent for paper and textiles; As dehydrating agent; And act as a buffer. In medicine, it is used as expectorant and diuretic.
  3. Potassium acetate was initially used to prepare the smoke liquid of Cadet, which was the first organometallic compound produced. It is used as a diuretic and urine alkali agent, and plays a role by changing the physical properties of body fluid and the alkali action after absorption.
  4. This product is used as dehydrating representative, fiber treatment agent and also analytical reagent. As penicillium culture tool in the pharmaceutical industry, potassium acetate is made use of as the raw material in the manufacturing of cortisone acetate, hydroprednisone acetate, dexamethasone acetate, betamethasone, as well as facile acetate.
  5. Confirm tartaric acid, desiccant, readjust pH value, as well as make clear glass. As penicillium society medium in the pharmaceutical sector, potassium acetate is utilized as the raw product in the manufacturing of cortisone acetate, hydroprednisone acetate, dexamethasone acetate, betamethasone, and also accomplished acetate.

Application of Potassium Acetate

Potassium acetate is used as driver in polyurethane production.

Potassium acetate can be made use of as deicing representative as opposed to chloride salts such as calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. Its advantage is that it is much less corrosive to soil, so it is the first choice for airport terminal paths. Nevertheless, it is more pricey. Potassium acetate is likewise the extinguishing agent utilized in Class K fire extinguishers because it can cool down and also form a covering on the burning oil.

  • Preservative
    Potassium acetate is used as artificial additive as preservative and level of acidity regulatory authority. In the EU, it is noted with the E number E261; It has actually additionally been accepted for use in the USA, Australia as well as New Zealand. Potassium diacetate (CAS # 4251-29-0), whose molecular formula is KH (O2 CCH 3) 2, is a relevant food additive with the very same E value as potassium acetate.
  • Medication as well as Biochemistry and biology
    In medication, potassium acetate is made use of as part of the alternate treatment for diabetic issues ketoacidosis, since it can be disintegrated into bicarbonate and also help reduce the effects of acidosis.
    In molecular biology, potassium acetate is utilized to speed up dodecyl sulfate (DS) as well as DS-binding proteins to eliminate healthy proteins from DNA. It is likewise made use of as a salt for DNA ethanol rainfall.
