Reactions in which Potassium hydroxide is involved

  • 2{M} + 2H2O = 2{M}OH + H2"|^" , where M = Li Na K Rb
  • {M}H + H2O -> {M}OH + H2"|^" , where M = Na K Li Rb Cs
  • Zn + 2{M}OH + 2H2O -> {M}2[Zn(OH)4] + H2"|^" , where M = Na K
  • 2Al + 2{M}OH + 6H2O -> 2{M}[Al(OH)4] + 3H2"|^" , where M = Na K
  • 2Cu(OH)2 + K2S2O6(O2) + 2KOH -> Cu2O3 + 2K2SO4 + 3H2O
