What is Sodium Permanganate
Definition and Application
Sodium permanganate is a chemical oxidant available as a liquid solution, used commonly in water treatment and chlorinated solvent remediation. An inorganic compound with the formula NaMn04, sodium permanganate is closely related to potassium permanganate, but differs in important ways in terms of application.
Permanganates have been used for decades in the treatment of soil and groundwater contaminated by chlorinated solvents. These are commonly used degreasers and cleaning products that contaminate the soil and groundwater underneath manufacturing plants, airports, dry cleaner facilities, and more.
Both potassium and sodium permanganate are commonly used with in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) for effective treatment of chemicals such as TCE, PCE, DCE, VC, and other chemicals of concern.
Our NaMn04 Quality and Test Results
Our permanganates are rigorously tested by independent laboratories, beating NSF water quality standards and consistently maintaining best industry standards for quality.
Particular contaminants of concern are lead, mercury, arsenic, and chromium, all of which are below detectable levels in CAP Remediation’s permanganate.
Our test results speak for themselves.
More About Permanganates For Water & Soil Remediation
sodium permanganate frequently asked questions
Sodium permanganate is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula NaMnO₄. It’s a strong oxidizing agent with a deep purple color.
Both are strong oxidizing agents, but sodium permanganate is more soluble in water compared to potassium permanganate (KMnO₄). This increased solubility makes sodium permanganate preferable for some applications.
Sodium permanganate is commonly used in water and wastewater treatment to control odor, taste, and to remove organic contaminants. It’s also used in certain industrial processes as an oxidizing agent.
It should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, combustible materials, and strong reducing agents.
Yes, sodium permanganate is a strong oxidizer and can react violently with combustible materials. It can also cause burns upon contact with skin or eyes.
Sodium permanganate oxidizes organic and inorganic substances in water, helping to break down contaminants, control odor, and improve taste.
While it possesses some disinfecting properties due to its oxidative strength, it’s not typically used as a primary disinfectant like chlorine or ozone.
In high concentrations, it can be harmful to aquatic life due to its strong oxidizing properties. However, when used correctly and in appropriate amounts, its environmental impact can be minimal.
For small spills, dilute with plenty of water and neutralize with a reducing agent like sodium bisulfite. For larger spills, contain and collect for proper disposal. Always refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for detailed instructions.
