Potassium acetate cas no 127-08-2, is the potassium salt of acetic acid. Potassium acetate is manufactured through the reaction between a potassium base such as potassium hydroxide or potassium carbonate with acetic acid. Potassium acetate is an important macromineral with many physiological functions and is required for nerve conduction, cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle contraction, energy generation, nucleic acid synthesis as well as mainlining the blood pressure and normal renal function. Potassium acetate can be taken as a nutritional supplement with antihypertensive effects and prevention effects against hypokalemia. Potassium acetate has several other common applications:

  1. as a deicer;
  2. as a food additive;
  3. molecular biology applications such as DNA purification, tissue preservation, fixation and mummification;
  4. Death penalty;
  5. as the catalyst during the production of polyurethanes.

Chemical Properties:

  1. Potassium acetate, KC2H302, is a white, deliquescent solid, potassium acetate soluble in watersoluble in water and alcohol, insoluble in ether, that melts at 292°C. Potassium acetate is used as an analytical reagent, dehydrating agent, in medicine, and in crystal glass manufacture.
  2. Pure potassium acetate is odorless or has a faint acetic odor and a saline taste.

Potassium Acetate Use:

  1. Potassium acetate, crystalline powder, USP is, as its name suggests, the potassium salt of acetic acid and is used as a catalyst for producing polyurethanes
  2. In the food industry it is used as a food additive, an acidity regulator and a preservative
  3. Potassium acetate can be used as a deicer instead of chloride salts such as calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. It offers the advantage of being less aggressive on soils and much less corrosive, and for this reason is preferred for airport runways. It is, however, more expensive. Potassium acetate is also the extinguishing agent used in class K fire extinguishers because of its ability to cool and form a crust over burning oils.
  4. Potassium acetate is used in the manufacture of glass; as a softening agent for papers and textiles; as a dehydrating agent; and as a buffer. In medicine it is used as an expectorant and diuretic.
  5. Potassium acetate was originally used in the preparation of Cadet’s fuming liquid, the first organometallic compound produced. It is used as diuretic and urinary alkaliser, and acts by changing the physical properties of the body fluids and by functioning as an alkali after absortion.
  6. In medicine, potassium acetate is used as part of replacement protocols in the treatment of diabetic ketoacidosis because of its ability to break down into bicarbonate and help neutralize the acidotic state.
  7. In molecular biology, potassium acetate is used to precipitate dodecyl sulfate (DS) and DS-bound proteins, allowing the removal of proteins from DNA. It is also used as a salt for the ethanol precipitation of DNA.
