Potassium Iodide

Potassium iodide is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula KI. These white salts are the most industrially huge iodide compound, with give or take 37,000 tons delivered in 1985. It is less hygroscopic (retains water less promptly) than sodium iodide, making it simpler to work with. Potassium iodide happens commonly in kelp. Aged and impure samples are yellow as a result of the sensible oxidation of the salt to potassium carbonate and essential iodine. Potassium iodide is medicinally utilized for thyroid bar, thyroid storm furthermore as an expectorant.

Potassium Iodide is manufactured scientifically by treating KOH with iodine. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, a list of the most vital medicine required in a basic human health system. Potassium Iodide serves various applications which include Industries, nutrition and pharmaceutical applications. Potassium Iodide plays an important role in the industrial application as KI is used with silver nitrate to make silver iodide (AgI) an important chemical in film photography. KI is a component in some disinfectants and hair treatment chemicals. Potassium iodide is a component in the electrolyte of Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC) along with iodine.

The significant uses of KI incorporate use as an issue supplement in animal feeds and also the human diet. The oxidation of iodide causes slow loss of iodine content from iodized salts that are exposed to excess air.

Potassium iodide is medicinally complete in 130 mg tablets for emergency purposes related to blockade of radioiodine uptake, a general form of radiation poisoning due to environmental infectivity by the short-lived fission product iodine-131. Potassium iodide may also be administered pharmaceutically for thyroid storm.

Potassium iodide is utilized to loosen and break up mucus in the airways. This helps you cough up the mucus so you can inhale more effectively if you have long-term lung problems (e.g., asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema). This medication is known as an expectorant.

Potassium iodide is also used along with antithyroid medicines to prepare the thyroidgland for surgical removal, to treat certain overactive thyroid conditions (hyperthyroidism), and to protect the thyroid in a radiation exposure emergency.
