硝酸钾是研究中发现的化合物。硝酸钾是一种水溶性化合物，由于其水溶性，通常被用作植物的营养来源。硝酸钾的化学式是KNO3。KNO3的氮含量约为13%，K2O含量约为44 ~ 46%。溶解度在(20°C) 316 g/L溶液pH 7 ~ 10左右。化合物的颜色:无色，可以是菱形或三角形晶体，也可以是白色颗粒状或晶体状。它通常没有气味(O ‘ Neil 1370)。这种味道通常是一种冷的咸味，有点辛辣。化合物的沸点是400摄氏度，这是它分解的地方。如果熔点为333-334℃，则其熔点为333-334℃。在25℃时，其溶于水的量为每100毫升克。溶于水和甘油，微溶于酒精。
它不溶于乙醇和无水乙醇。它的密度约为2.1g/cm3。pH值约为7，光谱特性表明折射率为1.335 (Alpha)、1.5056 (Beta)和1.5064 (gamma) (Rouxel 3020)。硝酸钾广泛用于火药、化肥和医药中。它是一种强氧化剂。从药理学上讲，硝酸钾是不可燃的，因此它本身并不构成安全问题，但是当它与其他可燃物质接触时，就会起到促进剂的作用，从而导致燃烧。这种情况在发生大火的情况下更为严重，因为大火也可能导致爆炸。这种化合物长时间暴露在高温下也会导致爆炸。当化合物暴露在高温下，产生有毒的氮氧化物时，也会产生安全问题。
Potassium Nitrate is the compound identified in the work. Potassium Nitrate is identified as a water soluble compound and is usually made use of as a source for nutrients to plants because of its water soluble nature. The chemical formula of potassium nitrate is KNO3. The nitrogen content in KNO3 is around 13 percent and it has K2O content around 44 to 46%. Water solubility is around (20°C) 316 g/L Solution pH 7 to 10. Color of compound: It is either colorless, and can be rhombic or as trigonal crystals or it can be a white granular or crystalline powered. It is usually odorless (O’ Neil 1370).The taste is usually a cooling taste which is saline and is slightly pungent. The boiling point of the compound is 400-degree C. This is where it decomposes. Its melting point if 333-334-degree C. Solubility in water is established as gram per 100 ml at 25-degree C. It is soluble in water and glycerol and is slightly soluble in alcohol.
It is insoluble in ethanol and absolute alcohol. It has a density of around 2.1g/cm3. The pH is about 7 with spectral properties indicating index of refraction at 1.335 (Alpha), 1.5056 (Beta) and 1.5064 (gamma) (Rouxel 3020).Potassium Nitrate popularly made use of in gunpowder and as a fertilizer and also in medicine. It is a strong oxidizer. By pharmacology, potassium nitrate is non-combustible and hence does not pose a safety issue in itself, however where it comes into contact with other combustible materials, then it would work as an accelerant and it would result in combustion. This situation is even more in the case of where there are large fires as it could result in an explosion too. Prolonged exposure of this compound to heat will also result in an explosion. There are also safety issues because of ingestion when the compound is exposed to heat as toxic oxides of nitrogen are produced.
