1. Mainly used in the manufacture of iodides, pesticides, feed additives, dyes, tinctures of iodine, test strips, medicines, etc.
2. Used as electronic industry materials and high-purity reagents.
3. For volumetric analysis and colorimetric analysis.
4. Used as the basic raw material for the manufacture of inorganic iodides and organic iodides. Mainly used in medical and health care, manufacturing various iodine preparations, bactericides, disinfectants, deodorants, analgesics and antidote for radioactive substances. Antibacterial agents used in industry for synthetic dyes, smoke suppressants, photographic emulsions and cutting oil emulsions;
5. It is used to manufacture electronic instruments such as single crystal prisms, optical instruments such as polarizers, glass that can transmit infrared rays, etc.;
