Since the purple color is due to the permanganate ion and not the potassium ion, pretty much bupkis.

What is an example of diffusion?

Tape a piece of wax paper over the window and it diffuses (spreads) the light. In the body: Oxygen molecules diffuse across cell membranes into cells, and carbon dioxide molecules diffuse out. Both compounds cross the phospholipid bilayer. In a non-living system: Place a small lump of sugar in a cup of tea (or just water). The sugar dissolves, then diffuses throughout the liquid. To see diffusion happening, use not sugar but a small crystal of potassium permanganate in water. The color will gradually disperse through the water.
