Ammonium Permanganate

Ammonium Permanganate (NH4MnO4) is a crystal or powder with a rich violet-brown or dark purple metallic sheen, toxic by ingestion or inhalation of dust. It is an oxidizer, corrosive, and explosive. Even though it is not flammable, we still recommend a secure chemical storage building or container that meets specific regulations for storing Ammonium Permanganate. That’s why we suggest one of the following: SUPERLoc, DRUMLoc

Ammonium Permanganate Storing Details

  • Flammable Details: Not flammable, but explosive.
  • Storage Details: Keep separated from incompatible substances. Store and handle in accordance with all current regulations and standards. Requires an approved chemical storage building, accounting for explosion hazard.
  • Compatible Details: Mixtures with acetic acid or acetic anhydride may explode if not kept cold [Von Schwartz p 34 1918]. Explosions can occur when permanganates that have been treated with sulfuric acid come in contact with benzene, carbon disulfide, diethyl ether, ethyl alcohol, petroleum, or organic matter.
  • Description: Ammonium permanganate is the chemical compound NH4MnO4, or NH3HMnO4. It is soluble in water. It is a strong oxidizer, owing to its permanganate anion, and it is a moderately strong explosive, owing ...
  • Classification: CLASS 5.1
  • Brand Name: n/a
