Tripotassium Citrate

CAS number: 6100-05-6
Chemical formula: C6H5K3O7H2O
Synonym: Potassium Citrate Monohydrate

Brief Description:

Tripotassium Citrate is one of the three potassium salts of citric acid. It is prepared by complete neutralization of citric acid with a highly pure potassium source and subsequent crystallization.

Tripotassium Citrate appears as white crystalline powder with a salty taste. It is slightly deliquescent when in contact with moisture. Potassium Citrate is very soluble in water and almost insoluble in ethanol. Tripotassium Citrate Monohydrate is very hygroscopic and must be protected from humidity.

Tripotassium Citrate is used in foods, beverages, cosmetics, agrochemicals and as buffering agents and emulsifying agents. It is used in place of Sodium Citrate where low sodium content is required.

Tripotassium Citrate is non-toxic and fully biodegradable. It is a slightly alkaline salt with low reactivity at ambient temperatures.

Tripotassium Citrate is widely used by Urocit-K manufacturers.

Our Tripotassium Citrate meets I.P./B.P/U.S.P testing specifications.
