The melting and boiling point of potassium permanganate is very important for its industrial synthesis. It is a strong oxidizer and so it has many uses in chemical, metallurgical, textile, water treatment and sewage treatment industries.

The oxidizing nature of the chemical makes it useful in bleaching, disinfectant, deodorizer and antiseptic applications. It is also used as a corrosion inhibitor in metals and as an anti-algal agent to kill algae.

KMnO4 is produced by oxidizing manganate in an electrolytic cell or by passing carbon dioxide through a solution of manganate and cooling it to form permanganate crystals. It is a purple to blue crystal with a slightly sweet taste and it is soluble in water.

It is a good antiseptic and can cure skin disorders such as foot fungal infections, dermatitis and rashes. It is a common solvent in water treatment and can eliminate hydrogen sulphide, iron, and other minerals that may be present in drinking water. It is also an odor remover, and can be used to produce organic molecules.

Potassium permanganate has a very high melting point (about 2800 degrees Celsius) and is also a very strong oxidizer. Therefore, it can easily oxidize a large amount of other substances without producing any toxic by-products.

It is a strong oxidizer and is not suitable to be combined with reducing agents, such as glycerin and sugar in order to prevent explosion. It can be hazardous if swallowed and it can cause severe eye, skin and respiratory tract irritation.
