potassium phosphate

[pə′tas·ē·əm ′fäs‚fāt]
(inorganic chemistry)
Any one of three orthophosphates of potassium. The monobasic form, KH2PO4, consists of colorless, water-soluble crystals melting at 253°C; used in sonar transducers, optical modulation, medicine, baking powders, and nutrient solutions; also known as potassium acid phosphate, potassium dihydrogen phosphate (KDP), potassium diphosphate, potassium orthophosphate. The dibasic form, K2HOP4, consists of white, water-soluble crystals; used in medicine, fermentation, and nutrient solutions; also known as potassium hydrogen phosphate, potassium monophosphate. The tribasic form, K3PO4, is a water-soluble, hygroscopic white powder, melting at 1340°C; used to purify gasoline, to soften water, and to make liquid soaps and fertilizers; also known as neutral potassium phosphate, tripotassium orthophosphate.

Since when do they even single-churn mixtures of water, sugar, oil, casein, natural and artificial flavor, monoand diglycerides, dipotassium phosphate, salt, cellulose gel, cellulose gum, and carrageenan?
Before utilization, the number of viable cells per unit of product was estimated through the serial dilution method and the colonies were counted on plates containing selective medium for Azospirillum composed of malic acid (5 g), dipotassium phosphate (0.5 g), iron sulfate (0.5 g), manganese (0.01 g) and magnesium (0.2 g), sodium chloride (0.1 g) and calcium (0.02 g), sodium molybdate (0.002 g), bromothymol blue (0.002 g), agar-agar (20 g), potassium hydroxide (4 g) and distilled water (1000 mL).
Aloe is another ingredient with functional properties that has found its way into sports drinks refashioned as "hydration beverages." Exemplifying this trend is Phenoh 7.4, a hydration beverage featuring dipotassium phosphate and magnesium chloride as electrolytes--making it useful as a sports drink--along with organic aloe vera, which is touted as a"super nutrient" to "fight inflammation and boost the immune system."
The solution was mixed in 50 mM dipotassium phosphate buffer solution (pH = 6) at room temperature.
albicans cells were used as a non-growing cell suspension in a buffer solution of 40mM Sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) and 6mM Dipotassium phosphate (K2HPO4) to which various concentrations of TA were added.
Tryptone, soya peptone, dextrose, NaCl, and dipotassium phosphate were considered as chemical components while pH, temperature, incubation time, and inoculum percentage were considered as physical parameters for protease production from X.
After clean-up, the electric 6-port valve was switched, and the drug to be determined was eluted to the analytical column by a mobile phase consisting of 500 mL/L acetonitrile (LiChrosolve) in phosphate buffer [1.825 g/L dipotassium phosphate trihydrate (Merck) in deionized water and adjusted to pH 6.4 with 850 mL/L phosphoric acid (Merck)] at a flow rate of 1.2 mL/min.
