As a primary standard for preparing volumetric alkali solutions and as a buffer in pH determinations. Potassium hydrogen phthalate is used as a primary standard for acid- base titrations as well as for calibrating pH meters. It acts as a buffer in pH determination. It finds application as a useful standard for total organic carbon testing.
