Potassium Bicarbonate

Potassium Bicarbonate | KHCO3

Potassium Bicarbonate

Product Name: Potassium Bicarbonate

Chemical Formula: KHCO3

Molecular Weight: 100.115


1. Potassium Bicarbonate is an inorganic substance with a colorless and transparent monoclinic crystal structure. The relative density is 2.17, which is stable in the air.

2. Potassium Bicarbonate is soluble in water and weakly alkaline due to hydrolysis. The aqueous solution of Potassium Bicarbonate and the magnesium salt do not precipitate, and a basic salt is produced.

3. Potassium Bicarbonate is hardly soluble in alcohol. Potassium Bicarbonate begins to decompose at 100 ℃ and completely decomposes at 200 ℃, losing carbon dioxide and water to form potassium carbonate.

Specification: Industrial Grade Potassium Bicarbonate

Indicator NameUnitStandard Value

Package: The outer woven bag is lined with a plastic bag, and the net weight is 25/50/kg.

Storage and Transportation:

1. Store in a ventilated and dry warehouse. Potassium Bicarbonate should not be stored in a cargo shed or in the open, and should be protected from moisture. When transporting, loading and unloading, it should be protected from rain to ensure that it is dry and the packaging is not damaged and polluted.

2. Potassium Bicarbonate cannot be stored and transported together with acids. Water can be used for rescue in case of fire. 

3. Potassium Bicarbonate reacts with acid or acid salt and produces carbon dioxide, which should be isolated from acid or acid salt.


1. Potassium Bicarbonate is used as a raw material for the production of potassium carbonate, potassium acetate, and potassium arsenite.

2. Potassium Bicarbonate can be used as a fire extinguishing agent for petroleum and chemicals. Potassium Bicarbonate can also be used in medicine and baking powder.

3. Potassium Bicarbonate can be used as acidity regulator, fire extinguishing agent, soil acidity improver and pesticide.
