What is Potassium Iodine Liquid?

Potassium Iodine Fluid is an ionic substance in which iodide ions can form dark yellow precipitated silver iodide with silver ions (see photodecomposition, which can be used to make high-speed photographic film), so silver nitrate can be used to examine the exposure of iodide ions. As a component of thyroxine, iodine is carefully concerning the basal metabolism of pets as well as also chicken, along with participates in nearly all material metabolic price procedures. Iodine shortage in pets will certainly produce hyperplasia as well as hypertrophy of the thyroid gland, decrease the basic metabolic price, and likewise influence growth and development. Iodine needs to be added to pets and also chicken feed in young pet dogs and iodine-deficient locations. High-yielding dairy items cows as well as also high-yielding laying hens require even more iodine, and iodine should certainly in addition be included in their feed. Iodine in milk as well as also eggs boosts with the increase of nutritional iodine. According to records, high-iodine eggs can reduce the cholesterol internet material of the human body in addition to are beneficial to the wellness of hypertensive people. In addition, throughout the period of pet dog fattening, although there is no iodine deficiency, in order to make the thyroid function of animals and fowl energetic, enhance the anti-stress capability, and also keep the greatest production ability, iodide is in addition supplemented. Potassium Iodine Fluid is added to the feed as an iodine source to stay clear of as well as handle lack. Iodine health problem, to promote growth, surge egg production price and additionally recreation rate, as well as additionally enhance feed usage, the amount included in the feed is usually a number of PPM, as a result of the fact that it is unforeseeable, generally consist of iron citrate and likewise calcium stearate (generally include 10 %) as a security agent to support it.

Potassium Iodine Liquid Uses

1. Utilized as an expectorant along with diuretic in medication
Potassium Iodine Fluid is frequently used as a steel pickling corrosion avoidance or a synergist for various other deterioration inhibitors. Potassium iodide is a basic material for the prep work of iodides as well as additionally dyes. It is made use of as photosensitive emulsifier, artificial additive, and also in medicine as expectorant, diuretic, medicine for goiter avoidance as well as hyperthyroidism operation, and likewise utilized as analytical reagent. It is utilized as a photosensitive emulsifier in the photo sector, and additionally as a drug as well as likewise preservative.

2. Used in the pharmaceutical industry
Potassium Iodine Liquid is utilized as a sensible reagent, such as the prep work of iodine normal option as a supporting reagent. It is also made use of as photosensitive emulsifier as well as feed additive. Made use of in the pharmaceutical market.

3. Iodized salt
The so-called iodized edible salt we commonly consume is to add Potassium Iodine Fluid or potassium iodate (in a proportion of 1/20,000) to average salt (pure sodium chloride).

4. Potassium Iodine Liquid has some unique usages in the field of dermatology
Its device of task routines partly to enhanced dissolution along with digestion of dangerous tissue. Potassium iodide also has antifungal task. It is clinically made use of to treat sporotrichosis, chromoblastomycosis, ruthless erythema nodosum and likewise nodular vasculitis. Focus on its negative effects when utilizing potassium iodide. It can develop pustules, sores, erythema, dermatitis, urticaria, and so on, as well as also can likewise magnify acne. Naturally, it can likewise produce tummy reactions in addition to mucosal signs.

5. Used in drug to quit and handle endemic goiter
Advertise the absorption of vitreous opacities and get rid of phlegm. It can furthermore be utilized as rational reagent, chromatographic analysis and likewise factor discomfort analysis.

Production Method of Potassium Iodine Liquid

At present, most of the domestic production of Potassium Iodine Liquid is by formic acid reduction method. That is, it is obtained by the action of iodine and potassium hydroxide to generate Potassium Iodine Liquid and potassium iodate, and then reducing potassium iodate with formic acid or charcoal. However, iodate is generated in this method, and the product is not suitable as a food additive. Food grade potassium iodide can be produced by iron filing method.

The iron filing method uses iodine and iron filings as raw materials. Put one part of iron filings in the reactor, add 7 parts (mass) of water, and add 3.3 parts of iodine in batches at 65~cT (the temperature is too high for iodine to sublime easily). After adding iodine tablets, the solution turns dark reddish brown, and the second batch of iodine tablets can be added after the solution turns light green. Then filter off the iron filings to obtain ferrous iodide solution, add this solution to 10:3 (mass) potassium carbonate aqueous solution to generate iron carbonate precipitate and potassium iodide solution. Let the solution stand still, and after clarification, the supernatant liquid is precipitated, heated and concentrated to a relative density of 1.75-1.81, and then filtered; when the filtrate continues to evaporate to a relative density of 1.93-1.98, it is filtered while it is hot. Cool to 60-70°C to stand for crystallization, and dry at 70-90°C after separation to obtain anhydrous potassium iodide product.



Proper Use of Potassium Iodine Liquid

Is it appropriate to take iodine tablets in advance, or even often, to prevent nuclear bomb explosions, nuclear power plant leaks, and nuclear radiation?

The standard answer is: not suitable.

Because normal people are not deficient in iodine, if they take iodine tablets frequently, it will lead to excessive iodine, which will cause various diseases such as hyperthyroidism. Therefore, although iodine is an essential element for the human body, it cannot be eaten too much. Of course, taking a little iodine once in a while is harmless. The problem is that you don’t know when the nuclear warhead will explode, or when the nuclear power plant will leak. To prevent nuclear radiation, don’t you need to take iodine tablets every day? This will inevitably lead to long-term iodine excess.

The commonly used iodine tablet ingredient is Potassium Iodine Liquid. The most common ones are 100 or 130 mg. This dose is the daily preventive dose for an ordinary adult man. Half for pregnant women and children aged 3 to 12. For children under 3 years old, take a quarter of the dose. Consuming too much iodine can damage your health. Some people even worry that the iodine added to table salt will cause disease. In fact, this situation is extremely rare, because the iodine content in table salt is very small, which is several orders of magnitude lower than that of iodine tablets.

Some people think that eating iodized salt every day can replace iodine tablets. This is wrong. Although commercially available edible iodized salt contains stable iodine, since the iodine content of iodized salt is stipulated in my country as 30 mg per kilogram, 0.3 mg of iodine can be obtained by consuming 10 g of iodized salt per person per day. Compared with the daily dose of Potassium Iodine Liquid iodine tablets recommended by the Ministry of Health for radiation prevention, adults are 100 mg and children are 50 mg. Adults need to ingest about 3 kg of iodized salt and children about 1.5 kg at a time to achieve the preventive effect, which is far beyond what humans can achieve. Tolerated salt intake limit. As recommended by the World Health Organization, potassium iodide should not be used as a general protective measure in anticipation of an event. Potassium iodide tablets should only be taken when expressly directed by the competent public health authority.
