Potassium hydride is a strong base and hydride donor to Lewis acids. It is generally employed in organic reactions like deprotonation, rearrangement, and elimination reactions. It is also used as a reducing agent to reduce hindered boranes and borates to substituted borohydrides.
Potassium hydride in paraffin can be used as a base in:
Wittig reaction of various aldehydes with high Z selectivity.
Williamson ether synthesis to prepare substituted ethers from alcohols.
Polymerization of ethylene oxide to yield polyethylene glycols.
5, 25 g in poly bottle
Melting point of paraffin used to prepare mixture is ~55-65 °C

Hyperkalaemia in heart failure patients limits use of cardioprotective renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors (RAASi). Sodium zirconium cyclosilicate (ZS-9) is a selective potassium ion trap, whose mechanism of action may allow for potassium binding in the upper gastrointestinal tract as early as
