Lithium, sodium, potassium and ammonium bisulphate have been shown by detailed TG/DTA studies to have limited application as molten solvents. By contrast, the eutectic bisulphate systems, ammonium-potassium bisulphate and sodium-potassium bisulphate, appear to be excellent molten solvents in view of their low melting points, long liquid ranges and prolonged thermal stability at 200°. In contrast to previous studies, potassium pyrosulphate has been found to be an excellent molten solvent, provided rigorous preliminary drying procedures have been applied.
