Sodium Permanganate in a Tote

What is Sodium Permanganate?

Description

Sodium permanganate (NaMn0 4) is a chemical oxidant available as a liquid solution, used commonly in environmental remediation and water treatment, among other industrial uses. An inorganic compound with the formula NaMn04, sodium permanganate is closely related to potassium permanganate, but differs in important ways in terms application.

Usage

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 widely used with in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) for effective treatment of chemicals such as TCE, PCE, DCE, VC, and other chemicals of concern.

sodium permanganate frequently asked questions
What is sodium permanganate?

Sodium permanganate is an inorganic compound with the chemical formula NaMnO₄. It’s a strong oxidizing agent with a deep purple color.


How does sodium permanganate differ from potassium permanganate?

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.


What are the common uses of sodium permanganate?

Sodium permanganate is commonly used in water and wastewater treatment to control odor, taste, and to remove organic contaminants. It’s also used in both environmental remediation and industrial processes as an oxidizing agent.


How is sodium permanganate typically stored?

Sodium permanganate should be stored in a cool, dry area in closed containers. Preferably store on concrete floors and avoid wooden decks due to the potential for acceleration of combustion. Keep container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Containers which are opened must be carefully resealed and kept upright to prevent leakage.

Segregate from acids, peroxides, formaldehyde, and all combustible, organic, or easily oxidized materials.

Always refer to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for proper handling and storage of sodium permanganate.



Is sodium permanganate hazardous?

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.


How does sodium permanganate work in water treatment?

Sodium permanganate oxidizes organic and inorganic substances in water, helping to break down contaminants, control odor, and improve taste.


Can sodium permanganate be used for disinfection?

While it possesses some disinfecting properties due to its oxidative strength, it’s not typically used as a primary disinfectant like chlorine or ozone and is not generally accepted or approved for use as a disinfectant.


Is sodium permanganate harmful to the environment?

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. Permanganate is used in environmental remediation to safely degrade common contaminants such as TCE, PCE, DCE, VC, and other chemicals of concern. 


How do I handle spills or releases of sodium permanganate?

For small spills, dilute with a 50/50 mix of 3% hydrogen peroxide and about 5 % acetic acid (vinegar) until you no longer see any purple/pink color. For larger spills, contain and collect for proper disposal.

Always refer to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for detailed instructions.


What materials are compatible with sodium permanganate?

Many types of rubber can be degraded by strong oxidizing agents. However, the specific resistance of rubber can vary significantly depending on its type and formulation. For instance, some types of synthetic rubber, such as Viton, have better chemical resistance than natural rubber or other synthetics like NBR (Nitrile Butadiene Rubber).

PVC is generally resistant to many chemical agents, and is generally safe to use with sodium permanganate, although schedule 80 PVC is recommended over schedule 40 PVC.

Plastics such as PTFE (Teflon), polypropylene, and HDPE are compatible with sodium permanganate.

More information about material compatibility with sodium permanganate can be found here.

It’s always important to consult with manufacturers or refer to chemical compatibility charts for the specific materials in question, as the composition can sometimes vary. Also, safety guidelines and regulations should be strictly adhered to when handling strong oxidizing agents like sodium permanganate.
