What is Potassium bromate?

With the progress of science and technology and the development of society, chemical products have invariably permeated our daily lives, in medicine, food, cosmetics, electronics, industry, and other areas, becoming an essential part of our lives. One such product is Potassium bromate which has developed particularly rapidly in recent years. Do you know about Potassium bromate?


The official answer: Potassium bromate, with the molecular formula KBrO3, is an inorganic salt, white or colorless tripartite crystalline or granular. It is mainly used as an analytical reagent, oxidizing agent, food additive (now banned in China), and bleaching agent for wool. It is irritating to the eyes, skin, and mucous membranes. Oral ingestion can cause nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, blood and diarrhea. It is also harmful to the environment.

What’s the application of Potassium bromate?

Used as an oxidizing agent, as an additive to canned food, and as a treatment agent for wool. It is commonly used as an oxidizing agent and as a reference substance in analytical chemistry for the determination of gallium by spot-drop analysis. In mercury refining, its 3% aqueous solution can be used for mercury purification. It is also used as a wool treatment agent. In the food industry, it is used as a quality improver for canned fish products and as an additive for bread making to improve the quality of flour baking. As a flour quality improver, it has oxidizing properties and makes the flour bleached; it inhibits the activity of proteolytic enzymes and improves the nature of gluten. China’s regulations can be used in wheat flour, the maximum use level 0.03g/kg, the final food must not be detected. Used as wheat flour treatment agent; dough quality improver; oxidizing agent; fish canning reformer; malt saccharification treatment agent.

Production method:

  1. obtained by the decomposition of magnesium bromate and potassium chloride: Mg(BrO3)2 + 2KCl → 2KBrO3 + MgCl2 by dropping bromine into potassium hydroxide solution, which can produce both potassium bromide and potassium bromate, and then crystallize them separately (recrystallization in boiling water).
  2. Bromine-potassium hydroxide method uses industrial bromine and potassium hydroxide as raw material, dissolve potassium hydroxide in 1.4 times the mass of water, pass bromine under constant stirring, soon precipitate white, i.e. potassium bromate, continue to add bromine until the liquid is pink; after cooling, separate the generated potassium bromide, then recrystallize once with water to obtain finished potassium bromate. 6KOH + 3Br2 → 5KBr + KbrO3 + 3H2O 3H2OBarium bromate method add potassium sulfate to barium bromate solution, filter to remove the barium sulfate precipitate, the filtrate is cooled, crystallized, and dried to obtain the product.
  3. Electrolysis method of bromine and potassium hydroxide synthesis of potassium bromide with distilled water to dissolve into the electrolyte, electrolysis 24h out of the first batch of crude products, after every 12h to take the crude products, crude products by washing to remove potassium bromide dissolved in distilled water, add a small amount of potassium hydroxide pH 8, insulation 0.5h and then filtered, the clarified filtrate in the crystallizer cooled to room temperature, crystallization, separation, drying, the product of potassium bromate product. Its anode Br-+6OH-→BrO3-+3H2O+6e cathode 6H++6e→3H2↑KBr+3H2O→KBrO3+3H2↑Chlorine oxidation method of lime milk and bromine reaction after the passage of chlorine gas for chlorine oxidation reaction, until the pH value of 6 ~ 7 reactions is terminated. After slag removal, the filtrate is evaporated. Add barium chloride solution to react to produce barium bromate precipitate, the filtered precipitate is suspended with water, keep a certain temperature and add potassium carbonate to carry out the re-decomposition reaction, the crude potassium bromate is washed with a small amount of distilled water several times and then filtered, evaporated, cooled and crystallized, separated, dried and crushed to produce edible potassium bromate products. Its 6Ca(OH)2+6Br2→Ca(BrO3)3+5CaBr2+6H2OCaBr2+6Cl2+6Ca(OH)2→Ca(BrO3)2+CaCl2+6H2OCa(BrO3)2+BaCl2→Ba(BrO3)2↓+CaCl2Ba(BrO3)2+K2CO3→2KBrO3 +BaCO3↓

Peter has been my partner for many years, we met at the Shanghai CPHI Fair in 2014, for the first time I didn't have much interest in Peter's products because our company had a stable supplier. Although we didn't work together, Peter would often send me important news and interesting trend information about the industry, so we became good friends, even though I didn't place any orders with him during this time, even if it was a sample order. In September 2016, our original supplier was unable to provide us with the quality and delivery guarantees we needed, so I first thought of Peter and his company. Until now, we have maintained a very good personal friendship in addition to a steady business relationship.

In all my years of sourcing from China, I first time to found that working with Sincere Chemical was so good, they helped me with all the production and delivery as well as a lot of technical expertise, which saved me a lot of time. When I first approached Peter for a quotation for Optical Brightener, he made me a detailed quotation with not only prices but also foreign trade details, company profile, company strengths, R&D capabilities, production capacity, packaging methods, raw material control, environmental protection, and much more. This information was a very important reference for me in making purchasing decisions. Sincere Chemical is a trustworthy supplier and I believe our business will grow from strength to strength!

Hi, I'm Kim, I'm Peter's partner and although I don't like him very much (because he never gives me more money for my prices, hahaha) I'm still willing to write him customer feedback. As an international buyer, I have to deal with a lot of things every day and my inbox is often full of development letters. It's a lot of junk and meaningless pleasantries, which I don't like that much, but Peter's emails always give me a better understanding of the product and the industry. I am also very pleased with his work ethic, and I am very happy with his work every time I work with him, not only in providing quotations but also in facilitating all the details of my work so that I can concentrate more on other things, so he is the best supplier for me. Although his prices are not the lowest among all suppliers, his products give me the greatest peace of mind.
