aluminum potassium sulfate dodecahydrate is a kind of inorganic substance, also known as alum. the chemical formula is kal(so4)2·12h2o, which is a double salt of potassium sulfate and aluminum sulfate containing crystal water . soluble in water, insoluble in ethanol. alum taste sour and astringent, cold; it can also be used for preparing aluminum salt, baking powder, paint, tanning material, clarifying agent, mordant, paper making, waterproofing agent and so on. it is often used for water purification in daily life. because long-term consumption of food additives containing aluminum is very harmful to human body, especially to children's growth and intelligence will affect, the country has banned its use in food additives.
