What is the reaction of Potassium permanganate and salicylic acid?

ofcourse salicylic acid would react with Hot, acidic Potassium permanganate because it has a phenol group in its structure. and based in our chem, this kind of reagent is used to test the presence of phenol. to prove, or to give you a visible result, your finished product must change its color from purple to dark brown precipitate, this means that salicylic acid is already oxidized by the strong oxidizing agent..
