Potassium carbonate appears as a white powder or granules that are soluble in water. When it is mixed in water it forms a strong alkaline solution. It is an aqueous solution of potassium dioxide. It is referred to be the major constituent of potash and refined pearl ash or tartar. Moreover, it is also referred to as pearl ash, carbonate of potash, salt of wormwood, salt of tartar, and dipotassium carbonate. Potassium carbonate is formed by the process of electrolysis of potassium chloride, which is again carbonated with the help of carbon dioxide forming the final product potassium carbonate.
