Potassium Monopersulfate


Potassium monopersulfate compound (Synonyms: potassium peroxymonosulfate) is a free-flowing, white granular solid, soluble in water. It is present as a component of a triple salt including potassium monopersulfate, potassium bisulfateand potassium sulfate with the formula 2KHSO5·KHSO4·K2SO4. The oxidation potential of this compound is derived from its peracid chemistry.



The compound provides powerful non-chlorine oxidation for a wide variety of industrial and consumer uses. It’s applications may be found in oral hygiene formulations, pool and spa shock and disinfections, paper recycling, printed circuit board etching, wool shrink proofing, laundry bleaches, precious metal extraction process. The compound is an important auxiliary agent in organic synthesis for oxidizing plenty of organics and functioning as the epoxy oxidizer of the twin bonds of organic chemicals. It’s also a free radicle introductory agent in many polymeric reactions. Potassium peroxymonosulfate can be used to oxidize hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and other reduced sulfur compounds, such as mercaptans, sulfides, disulfides, and sulfites in waste water treatment. It’s also an oxygen releasing agent in aquiculture and low temperature bleaching agent in detergent formulations.
