Potassium Tellurite Hydrate
Tellurites are rare oxide minerals containing tellurium dioxide. Tellurites can be reduced to elemental tellurium by electrolysis or a strong reducing agent but are still considered one of the more stable tellurium compounds.
Potassium tellurite (K2TeO3) is used together with agar as part of a selective medium for growth of some bacteria, for example Egg yolk tellurite emulsion, used in Baird-Parker Medium for the detection of pathogenic staphylococci.It is also used as a component of Vogel-Johnson Agar, a selective medium for the isolation of Staphylococcus aureus from clinical specimens and food.
