The chemical formula KCl is a colorless slender diamond or a cubic crystal, or a white crystalline small particle powder, which looks like salt, odorless and tastes salty. Commonly used in low sodium salts, the mineral water additive potassium chloride is. Clinically used electrolyte balance regulating drugs, clinical efficacy is exact, widely used in clinical departments.

Mainly used in the inorganic industry, it is the basic raw material for the manufacture of various potassium salts or bases such as potassium hydroxide, potassium sulfate, potassium nitrate, potassium chlorate, and red strontium potassium. The pharmaceutical industry is used as a diuretic and a pharmaceutical dye for the prevention and treatment of potassium deficiency. The industry is used to produce barium salts, reactive dyes, and the like. In agriculture, it is a potash. Its fertilizer efficiency is fast, and it is directly applied to farmland, which can raise the water in the lower layer of the soil and have the effect of resisting drought. However, it is not suitable for application in saline-alkali soils and crops such as tobacco, sweet potato and sugar beet. Potassium chloride is similar in taste to sodium chloride (bitter) and is also used as an additive to low sodium or mineral water. In addition, it is also used in the manufacture of flame retardants, steel heat treatment agents, and for photography. It can also be used in medicine, scientific applications, food processing, and salt can also replace sodium chloride with some potassium chloride to reduce the possibility of high blood pressure.
