Potassium Permanganate is more commonly known by its Empirical Formula KMnO4. It is a salt with Manganese in the +7 Oxidation State. This salt consists of 1 manganese atom and 4 oxygen atoms. It is also referred to as "permanganate of potash." This ion acts as a potent oxidizing agent. When in solution, it produces deep purple liquid, from which purplish-black glistening crystals are made upon evaporating. Its taste can be described as sweet. Its oxidizing properties allow it to add oxygen, remove hydrogen or strip electrons from an element or compound that is, it can break down organic material, which could include bacteria, parasites and fungus etc.

Applications & Uses of Potassium Permanganate

Potassium permanganate is commonly used as an oxidizing agent in the laboratory and industrial chemical reactions.

Water Treatment and Disinfectants

Potassium permanganate serves various purposes as an oxidant. Diluting it to 0.01% can treat canker sores, disinfect hands, and relieve mild pompholyx, dermatitis, and fungal infections of the hands or feet. In non-urbanized areas, it helps remove iron and hydrogen sulfide from water sources. Furthermore, a 0.05% solution is used to treat oral, and sinus infections as its irritation is milder than saline yet still offers strong antimicrobial effects when gargled. It may even be more effective than commercial mouthwashes! Pool supply stores carry this chemical; caution should be made when using it near mucous membranes to prevent irritation.

Analytical Chemistry

A potassium permanganate solution can also be used in analytical chemistry to determine the total amount of oxidisable organic material in an aqueous sample, known as the permanganate value, a quantitative value selected. Because of its deep purple colour, KMnO4 aqueous solution is sometimes used as an oxidizing titrant in redox titrations. As a reagent, it can also determine the Kappa number of wood pulp.

 Biomedical Uses

Abortion is induced by dilute solutions inserted into the uterus. Crystalline forms have been inserted into the vagina as abortifacients, often resulting in severe injury.

Histology uses an acidified potassium permanganate solution to bleach melanin, which obscures tissue detail. Amyloid AA can also be distinguished from other amyloid pathologically deposited in body tissues by potassium permanganate. If fixed tissue is incubated with potassium permanganate, amyloid AA will not stain with Congo red. Other types of amyloid will remain unaffected.

Hatcheries & Poultry Farm

KMnO4 is employed for a variety of purposes, including eliminating certain parasitic diseases that affect fish and poultry, bringing racing pigeons to peak performance (known as the "fly or die" method devised by British pigeon breeder Kenny Johnson), treating drinking water, and working as an antidote in cases of phosphorus poisoning. An old-fashioned remedy for adult chickens' diarrhoea is adding one tablespoon of powder to 4.25 gallons of water. Artists can also use it to bleach paper; just a splash of lemon juice will suffice to quickly remove the colour, forming exciting patterns if applied with a brush.

Pharmacuetical Industry

Pharmaceutical intermediates and bulk drugs can be made through various chemical processes. The therapeutic value of any compound in the drug depends on the illness it targets and how effective the molecule is at managing and eradicating it. One of these reactions includes Oxidation, for which Potassium Permanganate is often employed due to its strong oxidizing power and cost-effectiveness.


Due to the growing population, aquaculture products are continuously in demand. To meet this demand, intensive and semi-intensive farming techniques are applied. While these methods increase production levels, they pose the threat of infection and disease spreading uncontrollably.

In order to mitigate this problem, potassium permanganate can be used for various purposes, including increasing oxygen levels by oxidizing organic and inorganic matter in water, controlling phytoplankton growth, destroying bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungus, and treating fish with various diseases.
