MKP Properties:
Monopotassium phosphate(also potassium dihydrogen phosphate, KDP, or monobasic potassium phosphate, MKP) -- KH2PO4 -- is a soluble salt which is used as a fertilizer, a food additive and a fungicide. Monopotassium phosphate is colorless or white crystalline granule or crystalline powder, odorless, steady in air, relative density 2.338, melting point 96 ℃-253 ℃, easily soluble in water (83.5g/100ml, 90 ℃), PH4.2-4.7 in 2.7% aqueous solution, but insoluble in ethanol.

Monopotassium Phosphate Usage:

Buffers in foodstuffs. Ingredients in emulsifying salts for processed cheese products. Components of phosphate mixes for processed meat products. MKP is one of the components of gatorade (used as both an emulsifier and pH buffer) and is used as an additive in cigarettes.
