Information @ a Glance

  • Potassium permanganate is an oxidising agent with disinfectant, deodorising and astringent properties. Its chemical formula is KmnO4 and it is sometimes called by its common name Condy's crystals.
  • Potassium permanganate is very fast reacting (on the order of seconds) with hydrogen sulfide and organic odor compounds, making it a good choice for application in solids processing where retention times may be very short.
  • Potassium permanganate is the inorganic chemical compound K[[manganese|Mn]]O4, a water soluble salt consisting of equal mole amounts of potassium (K+) and permanganate (MnO4-, officially called manganate(VII) ) ions.
  • Potassium permanganate is manufactured on a large scale from manganese dioxide. The mineral pyrolusite is fused with potassium hydroxide and heated in air or with potassium nitrate (a source of oxygen).
  • Potassium permanganate, obtainable at pool supply stores, is used in rural areas to remove iron and hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell) from well and waste water.
  • Potassium permanganate can be used to quantitatively determine the total oxidisable organic material in an aqueous sample.
  • Potassium permanganate is difficult to obtain in a very pure state  and cannot therefore be used as a primary standard.
  • Currently, in aquaculture worldwide, KMnO4 has been used as a water/bath treatment for protozoan parasites in commercial and ornamental fish culture.
  • Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) is one of the widely used inorganic chemicals worldwide and much information is available on its chemistry, manufacture and various use.
  • It has been used in fish ponds to treat common fish pathogens such as gill parasites and external bacterial and fungal infections.
  • Potassium permanganate is commercially available in crystal or powder form. it should be mixed with water before use, and then applied evenly over the entire pond surface to ensure an effective treatment.
  • Potassium permanganate, although one of the safest internal and external disinfectants in correct dilution, has toxic properties when used in concentration, and may even cause death, as has been shown by a review of the available literature.
