Potassium Sorbate USP Grade Specifications
C6H7KO2 -- 150.22
2,4-Hexadienoic acid, (E,E)-, potassium salt; 2,4-Hexadienoic acid, potassium salt.
Potassium (E,E)-sorbate; Potassium sorbate CAS 590-00-1 and 24634-61-5

Potassium Sorbate contains not less than 98.0 percent and not more than 101.0 percent of C6H7KO2, calculated on the dried basis.

A: Dissolve 1 g in 10 mL of water: the solution responds to the test for Potassium.
B: Dissolve 0.2 g in 2 mL of water, and add a few drops of bromine: the color is discharged.
Acidity or alkalinity: Dissolve 1.1 g in 20 mL of water, and add PhPh. If the solution is colorless, titrate with 0.10 N sodium hydroxide to a pink color that persists for 15 seconds: not more than 1.1 mL is required. If the solution is pink in color, titrate with 0.10 N hydrochloric acid: not more than 0.80 mL is required to discharge the pink color.
Loss on drying: Dry it at 105C for 3 hours: it loses not more than 1.0% of its weight.
Heavy metals: 0.001%.

Potassium Sorbate FCC Food Grade Specifications
2,4-Hexadienoic Acid, Potassium Salt
C6H7KO2 Formula weight 150.22
CAS 590-00-1

Potassium Sorbate occurs as white to off white crystals, crystalline powder, or pellets. It decomposes at about 270C.

A. A 1:10 aqueous solution responds to the flame test for Potassium.
B. Add a few drops of bromine TS to 2 mL of a 1:10 solution. The color disappears.
Assay: Not less than 98.0% and not more than 101.0% of C6H7KO2, calculated on the dried basis.
Acidity (as sorbic acid): Passes test (about 1%).
Alkalinity (as K2CO3): Passes test (about 1%).
Lead: Not more than 2 mg/kg.
Loss on Drying: Not more than 1.0%.
