Description

Applications
Potassium acetate is used as deicer to remove snow and ice from the surface and considered as a replacement for calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. It is used as a food additive, as a buffer in biological research, as an extinguishing agent used in class K fire extinguishers and as a catalyst to produce polyurethane polymers. It is utilized for the precipitation of dodecyl sulfate bound proteins, thereby removal of proteins from DNA. It plays an important role in preserving tissues, fixation and mummification.

Solubility
Soluble in water, alcohol and ammonia. Insoluble in acetone and ether.

Notes
Hygroscopic. Air and moisture sensitive. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
