Strong oxidants ---Potassium permanganate

Post  gill on Mon Dec 06, 2010 8:39 pm

Learned some chemical knowledge should know potassium permanganate, a substance soluble in water to form a purple solution. This is a common inorganic chemicals, industrial and life have a lot of uses.
At present, the manganese dioxide as raw material to the system to take potassium permanganate, it is used in industry as disinfectant, bleaching agent, in the laboratory, potassium permanganate solution because of its strong oxidizing and bright colors were used for material identification. In addition, the acidic potassium permanganate solution is an important redox titration reagents. In medicine, potassium permanganate can also be used for disinfection, gastric lavage. Potassium permanganate at room temperature with the glycerol and other organic reactions can even burn; in a more acidic environment, oxidation, oxidation of the negative valence of chlorine, bromine, iodine, sulfur, and sulfur dioxide plasma. Contact with the skin can be dyed brown skin corrosion, a few days does not fade; powder dispersed in the air, there is a strong irritant, can people even sneezing. Urine, sulfur dioxide, etc. can make it fade.
