Potassium monopersulfate compound provides powerful non-chlorine oxidation for a wide variety of industrial and consumer uses. It’s applications may be found in oral hygiene formulations, pool and spa shock and disinfection, paper recycling, printed circuit board etching, wool shrink proofing, laundry bleaches, precious metal extraction process. Potassium monopersulfate compound is an important auxiliary agent in organic synthesis for oxidizing plenty of organics and functioning as the epoxy oxidizer of the twin bonds of organic chemicals. It’s also a free radicle introductory agent in many polymeric reactions. Potassium monopersulfate can be used to oxidize hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and other reduced sulfur compounds, such as mercaptans, sulfides, disulfides, and sulfites in waste water treatment. It’s also an oxygen releasing agent in aquiculture and low temperature bleaching agent in detergent formulations.
Handling and Storage
♣ Store in a cool, well ventilated area away from all source of ignition and out of direct sunlight. Store in a dry location away from heat. Store at temperatures less than 30 °C.
♣ Keep away from incompatible materials. Keep containers tightly closed. Do not store in unlabeled or mislabeled containers.
♣ Protect from moisture. Do not store near combustible materials. Keep containers well sealed, seal only with original vent cap. Ensure pressure relief and adequate ventilation.
♣ Store separately from organics and reducing materials. Avoid contamination which may lead to decomposition.
♣ Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Use with adequate ventilation.
♣ Do not swallow. Avoid breathing vapors, mists, or dust. Do not eat, drink, or smoke in work area.
♣ Prevent contact with combustible or organic materials.
♣ Label containers and keep them tightly closed when not in use.
♣ Wash thoroughly after handling.
♣ Inhalation- Remove affected person to
fresh air. Do not use mouth-to mouth resuscitation. Seek medical attention
if effects persist.
♣ Eye contact-Flush eyes with running water for at least 15 minutes with eyelids held open. Seek specialist advice.
