Sodium & Potassium Oxides KNO

Alkali Flux Unit 6 Topic 3
Oxide Qualities

Symbolists the combination of K2O and Na2O in a unity formula.

Sometimes written as KNa2O

KNO is NOT a chemical symbol for a particular oxide.

The KNO symbol indicates that the value associated with it in the the unity formula is a combination of the Potassium Oxide and Sodium Oxide molecular parts.

This convention simplifies the selection of materials in the Formula to Recipe process where the relative proportions of Na2O and K2O are not important as they are such similar oxides.
