Potassium permanganate

Used as an oxidant in many chemical reactions, especially in organic chemistry

The mixture of potassium permanganate and glycerol is self-igniting. This phenomenon is used to start a fire in difficult conditions (eg in handy rescue kits)

Potassium permanganate has strong bactericidal and fungicidal properties. The pellets of this compound are, among others used for disinfecting washing water (eg for bathing newborns); active ingredient in throat decontamination ointments and in wound disinfectants. The diluted solution is used to rinse the mouth.

It is used as an agent for the production of oxygen by reaction with hydrogen peroxide or as a result of strong heating. It can also be used to obtain chlorine in reaction with hydrochloric acid.
