Potassium Chloride + Lite Salt

I'd like to know if there's an easy method to seperating the NaCl from the KCl in Lite Salt. I'm trying to get KCl but only place I found it on the net is for industrial use... :(

I can't really think of a way to isolate it from NACl.


The traditional technique is fractional crystallization; NaCl and KCl should crystalize at different rates and different temperatures. If you keep the solution at the critical temperature, the least soluble should precipitate earlier. Those crystals are then redissolved and recrystalized to further exclude the second compound; that is what Madame Curie did with literally tonnes of solution from pitchblend tailings until she could crystalized fairly pure RaCl (with ultimately fatal consequences).

Frankly, the process is labor intensive, and I'd just spring for commercial KCl; you might try ay an old fashioned pharmacy or try a chemical supply house which should be willing to sell it in something less than barrel lots.

KCl is used as a fertilizer (or an ingrediant of) so it should be available comercialy not just industrially

Yes it's very useful for making bombs lol

Never heard of using it for explosive purposes before. The potassium ion really doesn't have any explosive characteristics, and neither does the chloride ion. Now potassium [i]nitrate[/i], however, is a different story. :wink:

potassium metal as well.

yu can make


very easly but cost like to buy
