Potassium Permanganate
Jan 05, 2018

Chemical formula: KMnO4

CAS RN: 7722-64-7

Chemical Property:①Oxidative decomposition occurs in ethanol and hydrogen peroxide.

②Potassium permanganate is one of the strongest oxidants greatly influenced by pH and possesses the strongest oxidation capacity in the acidic solution.

③With strong oxidizing property, potassium permanganate is commonly used as an oxidant in the laboratory and industry, to be decomposed when it is in contact with ethanol. 

④When it meets an organic matter, the product releases the nascent state oxygen and manganese dioxide without release of free-state oxygen molecules such that there is no bubble.

⑤Potassium permanganate is thermolabile.

Functions and Uses
It is widely used as an oxidant in chemical production, for instance it serves as an oxidant for making saccharin, vitamin C, isoniazid and benzoic acid; used as a preservative, disinfectant, deodorant and disinfectant in medicine; In the treatment of water quality purification and waste water treatment, it serves as water treatment agent to oxidize pollutants such as hydrogen sulfide, phenol, iron, manganese and organic and inorganic contaminants in order to control the odor and decolorization. In addition it is also used as bleach, adsorbent, coloring agent and disinfectant and it finds wide uses in smelting, military industry, printing-dyeing, electroplating, electronics, medicine and other industries.
