Potassium chromate - yellow crystals of rhombic system, stable in air. When heated, turns red when cooled again becomes yellow. Potassium chromate is soluble in water (38.9% at 20 ° C) soluble in ethyl alcohol and diethyl ether. An aqueous solution of potassium reagent lame has intense yellow color; the reaction solution was neutral.

Potassium chromate (potassium chromate) may be obtained in different ways:
• potassium chromate can be obtained from the action of potassium dichromate, such as potassium carbonate:
K2Cr2O7 + K2CO3 = 2K2CrO4 + CO2b
• pure preparation obtained by neutralization of chromic anhydride in the presence of potassium hydroxide, barium chromate as the inorganic reservoir for co-precipitation of impurities
CrO3 + 2KOH = K2CrO4 + H2O

Potassium chromate is used:
• to prepare solutions of the electrochemical oxidation of silver,
• as a component of the electrolyte composition of chemical degreasing
• for the passivation of silver jewelery and copper alloys
• as a mordant in dyeing fabrics, leather tanning,
• as an oxidant in the manufacture of dyes and others.
