Chemical formula: KNO3

Synonyms: saltpetre, nitrate of potash

Amount: 200 g

Description and uses: one of the most commonly used strong oxidisers, mainly for non-aqueous use. As such it finds extensive use in pyrotechnical applications, including gun powder. As an oxidiser it’s fairly comparable to potassium chlorate.

A good source of both nitrate and potassium ions, as it is quite soluble in water.

Dissolved in concentrated hydrochloric acid (HCl), it yields what could be called ‘the poor man’s aqua regia’ because of the formation of nitrosyl chloride (NOCl) which makes the mixture both a strong and oxidising acid mixture.
