ISOTECSM Permanganate-based reagents use either potassium permanganate (KMnO4) or sodium permanganate (NaMnO4). The reaction mechanism associated with both the permanganates is similar.
ISOTEC's Permanganate-based reagents are designed for both solo use or in combination with other ISOTEC's reagents (e.g. modified Fenton's reagent, Persulfate reagent). The reaction mechanism associated with our Permanganate process is shown below:
MnO4- + 4H+ +3e- MnO2 + H2O
MnO4- = Permanganate (Sodium or Potassium), H+ = Hydrogen ion, e- = Electrons, MnO2 = Manganese Dioxide, H2O = Water
