When potassium permanganate is dropped into water, the ions are solvated by the water molecules. This results because potassium permanganate is water soluble. Thus, the solid compound is separated into aqueous ions.
The reaction that produces more pure oxygen which is not united with other elements is solid potassium permanganate with hydrogen peroxide rather than solid potassium permanganate with sulfuric acid with H2O2.
To prepare a 0.1 molar acidified potassium permanganate solution, mix 50 mL of 2 percent sodium carbonate solution to 50 mL of 1 percent potassium solution. The formula of potassium permanganate is KMnO4.
Potassium permanganate and water form a solution, unless here is so much potassium permanganate present compared to the amount of water that the solubility limit is exceeded. In the latter instance, there might be both solution and suspension.
