is an alkaline metal , as revealed by the etymology of its symbol (K) which derives from the Latin word "kalium" and from the Arabic word "qali" (alkali). K is thus strongly electropositive and always occurs as a monovalent cation. Consequently, its physico-chemistry and speciation are rather simple. K is an abundant alkaline metal cation. reaching a ...
