## Abstract

The solubility of potassium ferrate(VI) (K_{2}FeO_{4}) was measured in a mixture solution containing various molar ratios of KOH and NaOH at a total concentration of 14 M from (10 to 60) °C. The solubility of K_{2}FeO_{4} decreased necause of the presence of K^{+} in the solution mixture. The solubility (S*) was expressed as log S* = 5.830-2019/T-5.845X_{K+}^{0.5} + 1.595X_{K+} + 724X_{K+}^{0.5}/T (σ = 0.024), where X_{K+} is the mole fraction of K^{+} in the solution mixture and T is in Kelvin. A comparison of the values of S* in different alkali metal hydroxide solutions showed that the solubility of K_{2}FeO_{4} was diminished in KOH and CsOH and similarly in LiOH and NaOH solutions. The solubility product constant (K_{sp}*), calculated from the solubility measurements, was given as log K_{sp}* = 18.10-6055/T-17.535X_{K+}^{0.5} + 4.785X_{K+} + 2171X_{K+}^{0.5}/T (σ = 0.061). The heat of dissolution (ΔH_{diss}) decreased linearly with an increase in the mole fraction of K^{+} ions. The significance of the solubility results is briefly discussed.
