Information  at a Glance Contents on the CD ROM
  • Potassium iodate is a mildly oxidizing salt of potassium cations and iodate anions. This product is suitable for use in all applications where a source of iodine is needed in an oxidizing state.
  • Appropriate uses include as an oxidization source or catalyst in chemical reactions. Ideal for use in all applications where potassium iodate is needed as an ingredient as a dietary iodine source or in the
    manufacture of food products.
  • Potassium iodate is a chemical compound and it is sometimes used in radiation treatment, as it can replace radioactive iodine from the thyroid and used in iodization of edible salts. Potassium iodate is an oxidizing agent.
  • Lack of iodine intake may result in a number of health problems, generally, termed as "iodine deficiency
  • Iodisation of salt is a simple technology and it involves homogenous mixing of potassium iodate in
    small quantities to edible salt.' The iodised salt looks, smells and tastes exactly like ordinary salt. In
    India, roughly more than 5 million tonnes of edible salt is produced and the demand for potassium iodate is around 250 tonnes per annum.
  • In process for Production of Potassium Iodate, iodine is dissolved in potassium hydroxide and the potassium iodide so obtained is electrochemically oxidized in an flow cell at current density of
    10 A/dm2 and temperature of 40oC. At the end of the electrolysis the electrolyte, the electrolyte is cooled when potassium iodate is obtained. After filtration the electrolyte is recycled to the cell feed.
  • Major application of potassium iodate is in the manufacture of iodised salt and to some extent potassium iodate is used in the pharmaceutical industry
  • Potassium iodate is used as a source for dietary iodine. It is also an ingredient in some baby formula milk.
  • Like potassium bromate, potassium iodate is occasionally used as a maturing agent in baking.
  • Potassium iodate may be used to protect against accumulation of radioactive iodine in the thyroid by saturating the body with a stable source of iodine prior to exposure
  • Accidental poisoning by potassium iodate at doses of 187470 mg/kg body weight through the oral route caused nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and marked loss of visual acuity.
  • The major raw materials required for the manufacture of potassium iodate are iodine and potassium hydroxide
  • The Investment required for producing
    30 MT of Potassium Iodate per annum will be about INR Two Crores approximately
