Chemical properties: KCl is highly soluble in water and a variety of polar solvents, and insoluble in many organic solvents. KCl dissolves in water and gets fully ionized into solvated K+ and Cl– ions. Thus, aqueous solutions of KCl show electrical conductivity, making KCl an important electrolyte in many applications. Another important reaction of KCl is used to produce metallic potassium, by reducing KCl with metallic sodium at 850 °C.
