General description

Potassium phosphate dibasic is a useful biological buffer having a pH in the range of 8.5–9.6. Potassium phosphate is present in various forms: monobasic (KH2PO4), dibasic (KH2PO4), and tribasic (K3PO4). Potassium phosphate buffers are widely employed in equilibrium dialysis, high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and affinity capillary electrophoresis studies.

Application

Potassium phosphate dibasic has been used in the preparation of MMG (maltose, methyl green) medium, phosphate buffered saline and hypotonic solution.
