Potassium Chlorate


 Potassium Chlorate
chemical formula: KClO3
( fine powder )
Potassium Chlorate is a powerful oxidizer used in older pyrotechnic formulations. Mixed with Manganese Dioxide in a test tube and heated, it can conveniently be used to produce useful quantities of pure Oxygen gas for other experiments. Potassium Chlorate is an unstable oxidizer. Pyrotechnic mixtures made with it are prone to spontaneous combustion and decomposition. For this reason it is banned from most firework formulations - generally being replaced with the far more stable Potassium Perchlorate. Potassium Chlorate requires care when mixed with other chemicals as they may become friction or static sensitive, and could ignite without warning.
NOTE: Federal regulations limit purchase of this chemical to 1 pound per year per customer.
