potassium tripolyphosphate, or potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP), KH2PO4, is a white, crystalline powder. It is a strong acid dissolver and an excellent oxidizer. It is also used as a chemical storage medium for batteries and solar panels.

It is used in a variety of products, including laundry detergents and fertilizers. It can make detergents more effective and improve plants’ root development.

Ingestion of monopotassium phosphate can cause irritation to the eyes and respiratory system when it is inhaled or swallowed. It can also irritate the skin and may cause electrolyte imbalances when eaten in excess.

Potassium is a major cation of intracellular fluid and plays an important role in the transmission of nerve impulses, muscle contraction, gastric secretion, and renal function. It also contributes to cell synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism, as well as maintaining acid-base balance and isotonicity.

Phosphate is a major anion of intracellular fluid and plays an important role for the synthesis of ATP, as well as contributing to cell membrane stabilization, ion transport, and a number of enzymatic reactions. It exerts a modifying influence on calcium concentrations and a buffering effect on acid-base balance, and has a significant role in the excretion of hydrogen ions.

Monopotassium phosphate is used in a wide range of applications, from pH regulators and water treatment products to pharmaceuticals, textile treatment products, and dyes. It is also used as a fungicide and fertilizer additive. It is generally used at a relatively low concentration and can be applied by spraying.
