    Potassium permanganate

    (Potassium manganate(VII))
    Chemical formula: KMnO4
    Country of origin: China
    Packing: 50 kg drums
    CAS: 7722-64-7


    Potassium permanganate is a dark purple, almost black crystals, when dissolved in water forming a solution of brightly colored crimson. Is a strong oxidant. Depending on the pH of the solution oxidizes various substances; it reduces to manganese compounds of different oxidation levels. The use of this salt is most often based on the high oxidizing ability of permanganate-ion, providing an antiseptic effect.
