Technical Specifications:
Potassium iodate (KIO3) is a chemical compound. It is sometimes used in radiation treatment, as it can replace radioactive iodine from the thyroid. See potassium iodide for more information on this use.
Like potassium bromate, potassium iodate is occasionally used as a maturing agent in baking. Potassium iodate is an oxidizing agent and as such it can cause fires if in contact with combustible materials or reducing agents. It can be prepared by reacting a potassium-containing base such as potassium hydroxide with iodic acid, for example: 
HIO3 + KOH = KIO3 + H2O
It can also be prepared by adding iodine to a hot, concentrated solution of potassium hydroxide.

Potassium iodate is an oxidizing agent and as such it can cause fires if in contact with combustible materials or reducing agents.
Potassium Iodate is widely used for salt iodisation in many developed and under developed countries as source of iodine.
Tablet of Potassium Iodate is widely used at the time of Nuclear Radiation
Potassium Iodate is widely used as a Laboratory Reagent.
Potassium Iodate is also used in Cattle Feed as a source of Iodine.

Laboratory USES of Potassium Iodate : 
In stronger Hydrochloric Acid solutions, Potassium Iodate oxidizes the Iodine generated in the first reaction above to Iodine Monochloride, and the equivalent weight of Potassium Iodate is one-fourth the molecular weight.

Potassium Iodate can also be used as a basimetric standard for standardization of strong acids. A slight excess of both Potassium Iodate and Potassium Iodide is added, and the Iodine generated is then titrated with standard Sodium Thiosulfate using Starch indicator.
