  • Potassium iodide is an inorganic compound with formula KI. This colorless salt is the most commercially significant iodide compound.
  • Potassium iodide is a salt of stable iodine which is an important chemical needed by the body to make thyroid hormones.
  • It is less hygroscopic than sodium iodide, making it easier to work with.
  • Aged and impure samples are yellow because of oxidation of the iodide to iodine.
  • Potassium iodide is ionic, K+I−.
  •  It crystallises in the sodium chloride motif.
  • It is produced industrially by treating KOH with iodine.
  • Potassium iodide  is prepared by reacting iodine with a hot solution of potassium hydroxide.
  • The risk of radioactive-iodine-induced thyroid cancer is greatest for children, adolescents and pregnant women.
  • Potassium iodide is readily absorbed within 30-60 minutes after oral administration.
  • Many potassium iodide products are available in the US, especially via the internet.
  • A novel organ metallic nonlinear optical  crystal, namely thiourea complex of tetrakis thiourea potassium iodide, has been grown by slow evaporation solution growth technique.
  • The chemical methods available consist of potentiometric titrations with silver nitrate or oxidation techniques which attempt to separate the
    iodide from the other halides.
  • The major uses of KI include nutritional supplement in animal feeds, a precursor to AgI, and as a component in disinfectants.
  • Potassium iodide is also added to table salt in small quantities to make it "iodized."
  • KI is also used as a fluorescence quenching agent in biomedical research because of collisional quenching by its iodide ion.
  • A saturated solution of potassium iodide, abbreviated SSKI, is also used as treatment for sporotrichosis, a fungal infection.
  • Potassium Iodate finds extensive application for the iodisation of salt which is used for the control of goitre and in analytical field. It is also used as a raw material in the manufacture of dial dehyde starch.
