- Potassium thiocyanate is the chemical
compound with the molecular formula KSCN. It is an important salt of
the thiocyanate anion, one of the pseudohalides. The compound has a
low melting point relative to most other inorganic salts.
- Dilute aqueous KSCN is occasionally
used for moderately realistic blood effects in film and theater. It
can be painted onto a surface or kept as a colorless solution.
- Potassium thiocyanate is colorless and
deliquescent. When dissolved in its own weight of water, the
temperature drops 30'C. It is used in the manufacture of artificial
mustard oil, in printing and dyeing, in photography and in
- The pharmaceutical industry uses
potassium thiocyanate as a raw material for chemotherapeutic drugs,
antibiotics and thyroid medications.
- The chemical industry uses this
inorganic reagent to produce photographs and textiles and to
manufacture herbicides, fungicides and pesticides.
- In fine-grain photography, film
processors use potassium thiocyanate to produce reduction in size of
individual silver halide grains because of its dissolving action.
- Potassium Thiocyanate can also be used
in treatement of Hypertension.
- Using KSCN-EDTA as a destaining
solution, which permitted the demonstration of the specificity of
the observed immunofluorescence.
- An analyzer for directly and
continuously measuring the concentration of soluble copper in an
aqueous solution by adding potassium thiocyanate there to in a
dilute solution to form cupric thiocyanate.
- Potassium Thiocyanate does not react
with glass or plastic and is easily washed off without leaving any
residue or causing any damage to the object.
- KSCN is a clear fluid, a separate
water-soluble dye is required as a contrast agent for scanning an
object made of clear glass or similar materials.
