Potassium permanganate



Chemical formula of potassium permanganate: KMnO4

Appearance of potassium permanganate: Pure red crystals.

Synonyms with potassium permanganate: potassium and permanganate.

Potassium permanganate is a mineral compound.

Potassium salt of permanganate is composed of K + and MnO4 ions.

Potassium permanganate is a very strong oxidizing agent.

Potassium permanganate is soluble in water and produces a purple solution, resulting in the evaporation of this solution of pristine crystals and glowing dark-blackish.

The potassium permanganate oxidation number is in solution water 7.

Potassium permanganate reacts with very intense glycerin.


Potassium permanganate applications


Most uses of potassium permanganate, due to its oxidizing properties, also do not produce toxic.


Cinematic industry

In the cinematic industry, potassium permanganate is used to age clothes. The permanganate oxidizing properties make fabrics, yarns, wood and glass and ... up to 100 years old. Water purification and disinfection

Potassium permanganate can be used as an antiseptic. For example, a diluted solution of permanganate is used to treat certain ulcers, such as fungal foot infection.


Other uses of potassium permanganate remove iron and hydrogen sulfide and eliminate phosphorus in drinking water.


Biomedical applications

As KMnO4 is used to disinfect water, potassium permanganate is also used as an antiseptic to treat some human and animal diseases. In histology, it is used to whiten melanin to reveal melanin dark texture details. P-magnesium potassium can be used to clean amyloid from other amyloids.

(Amyloids are a kind of proteins that cause amyloidosis if unobstructed) Potassium permanganate causes the amyloid to not be stained with congo red color, while other amyloid is colored with reddish congo To be In a period of time, potassium permanganate was used to treat gonorrhea and it is still used in the treatment of thrush.


Organic Chemistry Syntheses

The most important and largest application of potassium permanganate, its use as a reactant in the synthesis of some organic materials oxidation. For example, benzoalkyl compounds are oxidized to acids. Also, using permanganate, they convert alkenes to glycols.


Industrial waste water treatment

Due to the strong oxidizing properties and low cost of potassium permanganate, it is used in the treatment of industrial waste water.
