How Does Potassium Iodide Work How Does Potassium Iodide Work

Potassium iodide is used to make organic compounds and chemical reagents. The so-called iodized table salt that we often eat is the addition of potassium iodide or potassium iodate (in the ratio of one part in 20,000) to common salt (pure sodium chloride). Potassium iodide has some special USES in dermatology. Its mechanism is partly due to enhanced dissolution and digestion of necrotic tissue. Potassium iodide also has antifungal activity. It is clinically used to treat sporotrichosis, dysentery, persistent erythema nodules and vasculitis. When using potassium iodide, you should also pay attention to its side effects, which can cause pustules, blisters, erythema, eczema, urticaria and so on. It can also aggravate acne and, of course, cause gastrointestinal reactions and mucosal symptoms. Potassium iodide is used medicinally in the prevention and treatment of endemic goiter, promoting the absorption and expectoration of vitreous opacity. Potassium iodide is the raw material for the preparation of iodide and dye. Potassium chloride is used as a photosensitive emulsifier, food additive, iodine, and some insoluble metallic iodide cosolvent. It can also be used as an analytical reagent, chromatography and spot pain analysis. Potassium iodide is a stabilizer and a supporting solvent, and feed grade potassium iodide can also be used as a supplement for iodine in feed processing. Potassium iodide can also measure ozone concentration, replacing iodine to make starch blue, the reaction is as follows: O3+2KI+H2O=2KOH+O2+I2
