Preparation Of Oxygen Using Potassium Chlorate

Check us out at http://chemistry.tutorvista.com Potassium chlorate Potassium chlorate is a compound containing potassium, chlorine and oxygen, with the chemical formula KClO3. In pure form, it is a white crystalline substance. It is the most common chlorate in industrial use, and is usually present in well-stocked laboratories. It is used as an oxidizing agent, to prepare oxygen, as a disinfectant, in safety matches, and in explosives and fireworks. Potassium chlorate ( KCLO3 ) decomposes upon heating to yield Potassium chloride and Oxygen Gas . Manganese dioxide ( MnO2 ) is mixed with Potassium chlorate and performs as the catalyst of this reaction . 2 KClO3 ----( Heat with MnO2 Catalyst )----2 KCl + 3 O2 Please like our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/tutorvista
