Potassium nitrate (KNO3) is a white to grey ionic salt which is found in nature as saltpetre or nitre. This crystalline solid is non-combustible and slightly soluble in water, however, its solubility increases with temperature. Potassium nitrate is a strong oxidizing agent which can explode on reaction with other organic compounds. Owing to its beneficial properties, potassium nitrate is used as a constituent of fertilizers, fireworks, rocket propellants, gunpowder and medicines. It is also used in toothpastes as it provides protection against teeth sensitivity.
The potassium nitrate market has witnessed a steady growth owing to several favourable factors. Potassium nitrate has been used to preserve food items, such as beef, salami, ham, etc., since the medieval ages.
