Potassium permanganate is used for a number of¿¿skin conditions.¿¿This includes¿¿fungal infections of the foot,¿¿impetigo,¿¿pemphigus, superficial¿¿wounds,dermatitis, and¿¿tropical ulcers.¿¿It is on the¿¿WHO Model List of Essential Medicines, the most important medications needed in a basic¿¿health system.
Potassium permanganate is used extensively in the water treatment industry. It is used as a regeneration chemical to remove¿¿iron¿¿and¿¿hydrogen sulfide¿¿(rotten egg smell) from¿¿well¿¿water via a "Manganese Greensand" Filter. "Pot-Perm" is also obtainable at¿¿pool¿¿supply stores and is used additionally to treat waste water. Historically it was used to disinfect drinking water¿¿and can turn the water pink.¿¿It currently finds application in the control of nuisance organisms such as¿¿zebra mussels¿¿in fresh water collection and treatment systems.
Called¿¿Baeyer's reagent¿¿after the German organic chemist¿¿Adolf von Baeyer, KMnO4¿¿is used in¿¿Qualitative organic analysis¿¿to test for the presence ofunsaturation. The reagent is an alkaline solution of potassium permanganate. Reaction with double or triple bonds (-C=C- or -C¿¿¿C-) causes the color to fade from purplish-pink to brown.¿¿Aldehydes¿¿and¿¿formic acid¿¿(and formic acid¿¿esters) also give a positive test.¿¿The test is antiquated.¿¿
