Potassium Bicarbonate From Potassium Carbonate


This reaction, according to the website chemical equation balancer, is an impossible reaction:

K2CO3 + CO2 + H2O -> 2KHCO3

But I've been able to make it react by carbonating a potassium carbonate aqueous solution.

Wikipedia 9https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_bicarbonate)also indicates that it can be reacted:

Decomposition of the bicarbonate occurs between 100 and 120 °C (212 and 248 °F):

2 KHCO3 → K2CO3 + CO2 + H2O
It is manufactured by reversing the above: reaction of potassium carbonate with carbon dioxide and water:

K2CO3 + CO2 + H2O → 2 KHCO3


What am I missing here?
