Lugol's iodine, also known as Lugol's liquid, is a solution of elemental iodine and potassium iodide in water. Lugol's iodine solution is often used as an antiseptic and disinfectant, for emergency disinfection of drinking water, and as a reagent to detect starch in routine laboratory and medical tests. These applications are possible because the solution is a source of effectively free elemental iodine which is readily generated from the equilibrium between elemental iodine molecules and the triiodide ion in the solution.
Less commonly, it is used to replenish iodine deficiency. However, pure potassium iodide, which contains a relatively mild iodide ion without the more toxic elemental iodine, is strongly preferred for this purpose.
