Tech/Engineering - Chemistry; Chem Sci/Eng / Rendering compound name in English
Dutch term or phrase: Acetyleen dicarbonzuur kalium zout
Chemical compound found in a manufacturing process instruction sheet. Several hundred kgs of this to be added to something else ... :) ... I am at a loss on how to put it in EN, all my googling attempts have failed. So far I have quite literally
Acetylene dicarbonic acid potassium salt,
but am not the slightest bit convinced.

Help please!
