Expert Answer:

K2SO4.Al2(SO4)3.24H2O is known as potash alum
If you want to refine metals like K and Al is done by electrolysis.
But it is the very complicated method if you are want to extract metals from potash alum.
because it has very low contained metals in this compound we will get the very low amount of metal
Extraction of metals is only done by those ores which contained the maximum amount of metals.
