Usage and Definition of Potassium Persulfate
Potassium Persulfate decomposes completely at 100 oC. It is slightly soluble in water. It is not flammable. It should be stored in closed, cool and dry places. It should be protected from heat and moisture. Rust and metal dust can cause catalytic degradation. It decomposes on ignition and toxic gas is released. Eyes, skin and clothing should be protected when working with Potassium Persulfate. It is not harmful to health as crystal and solution when studied carefully.
In the polymerization of acrylonitrile, generally in the production of polyacrylonitrile fiber together with alkali sulfides, in the polymerization of various monomers; as an oxidant in the textile industry; in the oxidation of sulfur dyes; in metal, photography, cosmetics industries; in the production of various chemicals; purification of ammonium sulfate; as an antiseptic; It is used in soap production and drug production.
- Potassium persulfate is the initiator of latex or solution polymerization of acrylic monomers, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride and other product, but also the initiator of styrene, acrylonitrile, butadiene and similar emulsion for copolymerization.
- Potassium persulfate is mainly used as initiator and strong oxidizing agents
- It is used as a desizing agent and bleach activator. 2. It is used for oxidative degradation of harmful substances in the pool and closed circular cycle in the water. 3. It can be applied in the production of starch modifier and applied in the production of adhesive and coating agent. 4. Applicable to branched chain oxidation, alcohol and aromatic hydroxy oxidation.
- In the polymerization of acrylonitrile, often in the production of polyacrylonitrile fibers with alkaline sulfides, in the emulsion polymerization of monomers.
- As an oxidant in the textile industry.
- In the oxidation of sulfur dyes.
- Metal, photography, cosmetics industries.
- In the production of various chemicals.
