• Monitor serum potassium periodically during maintenance therapy to ensure potassium remains in desired range. (nih.gov)
  • Besides the patient history or a report of serum potassium low normal or low during an attack, the long exercise test is the current standard for medical testing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Reference electrodes generally used are hydrogen electrodes, calomel electrodes, and silver chloride electrodes. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1886, Henri Moissan, a chemist in Paris, performed electrolysis on potassium bifluoride dissolved in anhydrous hydrogen fluoride, and successfully isolated fluorine. (wikipedia.org)
  • Potassium chloride is used in some de-icing products that are designed to be safer for pets and plants, though these are inferior in melting quality to calcium chloride [lowest usable temperature 12 °F (−11 °C) v. −25 °F (−32 °C)]. It is also used in various brands of bottled water, as well as in bulk quantities for fossil fuel drilling purposes. (wikipedia.org)
  • The formula for the current WHO oral rehydration solution (also known as low-osmolar ORS or reduced-osmolarity ORS) is 2.6 grams (0.092 oz) salt (NaCl), 2.9 grams (0.10 oz) trisodium citrate dihydrate (C 6H 5Na 3O 7⋅2H 2O), 1.5 grams (0.053 oz) potassium chloride (KCl), 13.5 grams (0.48 oz) anhydrous glucose (C 6H 12O 6) per litre of fluid.

  • For example, titanium(II) chloride (titanium dichloride), titanium(III) chloride (titanium trichloride), and titanium(IV) chloride (titanium tetrachloride) may be considered congeners. (wikipedia.org)
  • The majority of potassium chloride in the United States is now extracted by a lengthy process that also begins with the crushing of natural ores, such as sylvite and carnalite. (encyclopedia.com)
  • This agent fell out of favor with the introduction of potassium bicarbonate (Purple-K) dry chemical in the late 1960s, which was much less corrosive and more effective. (wikipedia.org)
  • A flotation agent is a material that coats the desired compound, such as potassium chloride, and allows it to float to the surface of the reaction chamber, like the soap suds that float on top of a washing machine. (encyclopedia.com)
  • The compound provides the potassium plants need to stay healthy and grow normally. (encyclopedia.com)
  • KCl is useful as a beta radiation source for calibration of radiation monitoring equipment , because natural potassium contains 0.0118% of the isotope 40 K. One kilogram of KCl yields 16350 becquerels of radiation consisting of 89.28% beta and 10.72% gamma with 1.46083 MeV. (wikipedia.org)
  • From 1859 to 1864 production of potassium nitrate increased from 250 metric tons (280 short tons) to 2,400 metric tons (2,600 short tons). (wikipedia.org)
  • Morton ® Potassium Chloride Pellets are easy to lift, open and pour thanks to special bag features, including a sturdy plastic handle for more comfortable carrying and an easy-tear opening. (mortonsalt.com)
