Results are all over the place. Not really sure what to make of it. Weight of dry chemical after pulling a saturated 100 ml sample indicates KCl, but KCl just wont burn with sugar.

Dunno what to say. I'd have to agree with pyrojig above, and suggest returning it, if at all possible.

Could it be its just low purity? I was also wondering if re-crystallization would work.

 

 

I will have to contact the supplier if its returnable, but highly doubt it as it was final sell at $2 a #.

He assured me it was 99% pure.

I would hold his feet to the fire on this . It sounds like  a scam , and at $2 lb that is drum price if you have kick ass connections . I rarely ever see this material for under $3 lb even at drum priced weights  on a co-op buy. I would stop wasting time researching this and get a refund ASAP dont waste time with these scam artist on the internet . 

Just my 2cents worth .

try a chloride test with a small quantity of silver nitrate. forms insoluble silver chloride in the presence of chloride ions.

hi guys, 

 

so i was able to buy some kclo4 dirt cheap,but i think their might be a problem with it. I got in contact with my supplier and said it was nothing wrong with his product. 

but after doing  some research and running some tests i came to my conclusion i was sold kcl. would love your help assuring me the product is bad. thank you guys

 

 

 

KCl may easily be confirmed by a bit on the tongue: tastes exactly like NaCl, only slightly sharper. I EAT KCl every day!

Dude sold you 100# of Potassium Sulfate claiming it was Perchlorate?  Is he a scammer or just an idiot?  That's fertilizer--and you can get 100# of it for less than $100.

Is this guy close enough to pay a late night visit to?  With a clue bat?
