Potassium bicarbonate may be used as a catalyst in the synthesis of dimethyl carbonate (DMC) by reacting with propylene oxide (PO), supercritical CO2 (SC CO2) and methanol. It may also be used as a nucleophile for synthesizing branched allylic alcohols in the presence of iridium catalyst.
Features and Benefits
Meets A.C.S. reagent specifications.
Potassium bicarbonate is water soluble alkaline potassium salt with monoclinic crystalline structure. It is a raw material for the synthesis of many potassium compounds. It is a better coolant than sodium bicarbonate in the aerosol fire extinguishing apparatus. It shows potential as an antifungal agent.
