Potassium Carbonate is pure white crystalline powder and is odorless with approximately 56% potassium (K). Potassium Carbonate absorbs water easily from air and it dissolves in water. They can be formed with other compounds and also can be manufactured in other uses. Potassium Carbonate is soluble in water but insoluble in ethyl alcohol. Potassium carbonate abstracts in water into potassium (K+) and carbonate ions (CO32-). The dissolution/dissociation in water releases heat also when potassium carbonate is added to water, an efficient reaction occur. When the substance decomposes at high temperature, the vapor pressure of the substance is very low and a melting point cannot be found.
