Applications

Potassium iodate is an oxidizing agent used to prepare 2-styrylchromones from o-hydroxy-ω-cinnamylideneacetophenones by oxidative cyclization. It is used to iodinate table salt in order to prevent iodine deficiency. It is an active ingredient in baby formula milk. As a maturing agent, it is used in baking. Furthermore, it is involved in the protection of radioactive iodine accumulation in the thyroid.

Notes

Incompatible with aluminum, strong oxidizing agents, sulfides, peroxides, metals and reducing agents. Avoid heat, shock and friction.
