The Caustic Potash is also known as potassium hydroxide or caustic potash. They are extremely versatile and are basically used as cleaning agent. Apart from this they are highly basic, forming strongly alkaline solutions in water and other polar solvents. The Caustic Potash ( are capable of deprotonating many acids. They are also used as assay acids. Further they are provided in a sealed container to keep them sealed and safe. Further they are free from impurities and moisture & are available at reasonable time.
Like NaOH, KOH exhibits high thermal stability. The gaseous species is dimeric. Because of its high stability and relatively low melting point, it is often melt-cast as pellets or rods, forms that have low surface area and convenient handling properties.
Potassium hydroxide can be found in pure form by reacting sodium hydroxide with impure potassium. It is usually sold as translucent pellets, which will become tacky in air because KOH is hygroscopic. Consequently, KOH typically contains varying amounts of water (as well as carbonates - see below). Its dissolution in water is strongly exothermic. Concentrated aqueous solutions are sometimes called potassium lyes. Even at high temperatures, solid KOH does not dehydrate readily.
