Product Description

As an oxidizer, potassium iodate can cause fires if in contact with combustible materials or reducing agents. You can prepare it by reacting potassium hydroxide and iodic acid, for example: HIO3 + KOH → KIO3 + H2O.

Technical Specifications:

  • Potassium iodate is an ionic chemical compound comprisong K⁺ ions and IO₃⁻ ions in a 1:1 ratio.
  • Molar mass: 214.001 g/mol
  • Formula: KIO3
  • Melting point: 560 °C
  • Density: 3.89 g/cm³
  • Solubility: soluble in KI solution; insoluble in alcohol, liquid ammonia, nitric acid
  • Appearance: White crystalline powder


Applications Or where it is used:

Potassium Iodate tablets are used in nuclear emergencies to prevent the thyroid gland from absorbing radioactive iodine, which may leak into the environment after a nuclear accident. Children and babies are especially at risk from radioactive iodine.

Manufacturing process:

A potassium-containing base, such as potassium hydroxide, can be combined with iodic acid to prepare Potassium Iodate, for example: HIO3 + KOH → KIO3 + H2O. You can also prepare it by mixing iodine with a hot, concentrated solution of potassium hydroxide.

How to use:

During a nuclear emergency, the thyroid gland (located in your neck) is prevented from taking up radioactive iodine, which may have been released into the environment as a result of the accident.

Side effects:

  •  Skin rashes
  •  Swelling of the salivary glands
  • Iodism
  •  An allergic reaction


Warnings and precautions while using this product

Contact with eyes, skin, and clothing should be avoided. Stay away from combustible fabrics. Do not handle clothing or other materials that can catch fire. Do not breathe in dust.
