Potassium fluoride chemical properties:

(1) Basic nature

Soluble in water, soluble in hydrofluoric acid and liquid ammonia, slightly soluble in alcohol and acetone. The aqueous solution is alkaline and can corrode glass and porcelain. Heating to sublimation temperature when a little decomposition, but the activity of molten potassium fluoride is large, can corrode refractory material. And hydrogen peroxide can form adduct KF · H2O2. There are two hydrates: KF · 2H2O and KF · 4H2O. Below 40.2 ℃, the aqueous solution can be crystallized to get dihydrate (KF · 2H2O), monoclinic crystal, 41 ℃ can be self-soluble in water. poisonous.

(2) Stability

Reaction with the acid release of corrosive, more irritating hydrofluoric acid, can corrode the glass.
