Applications
Potassium chlorate is used in textile printing and dyeing, as a disinfectant, in manufacturing of aniline black and other dyes. It can be utilized as a source of oxygen and also used in pyrotechnics and chemistry demonstrations. Potassium chlorate is useful for the flowering of dimocarpus longan and is a highly effective method for off-season fruit production. Potassium chlorate-osmium tetroxide oxidizing system has a useful application for the synthesis of alpha-dicarbonyl derivatives of acetylenic compounds and 2,3-dihydroxy-1,4-dione from a 2,5-dialkylfuran.
