POTASSIUM OZONIDE KO3

Properties potassium ozonide KO3:

The orange-red. Resistant at cold, decomposes on gentle heating. Has an ionic structure (K+)(O3-). Readily soluble in liquid ammonia, partially reacts with it. Reacts vigorously with water, acids, sulfur. KO3 a strong oxidizing agent.


Molar mass g/mol 87.10
Density g/cm3 1.99

Obtaining potassium ozonide KO3:

КO2 + O3 = КO3 + O2 (until 0°C, in the liquid CCl2F2).

4 KOH + 4O3 = 4 КO3 + O2 + H2O (up to 20°C.


Chemical reactions with potassium ozonide KO3:

2 KO3 = 2 KO2 + O2 (20-60°C).

4 KO3 + 2 H2O = 4 KOH + 5 O2↑ (the admixture of radicals OH).

4 KO3 + 4 НСl (diluted, cold) = 4 KСl + 5O2↑ + 2 H2O,

2 KO3 + 4 НСl (diluted, hot) = 2 KСl + Cl2↑ + 2 O2↑ + 2H2O.

4 KO3 + H2O (moisture) + 3 CO2 = K2CO3 + 2KHСO3 + 5O2 (normal temp.).

6 KO3 + 5 S = K2SO4 + 2K2S2O7 (50°C).

KO3 + NH3 (liquid) ↔ NH4O3 + KNH2 (-50°C).
