LIQUOX® sodium permanganate is a liquid oxidant recommended for use in Electronics and Fine Chemical Synthesis, that require a concentrated permanganate solution.
Appearance Deep Purple Solution
Shelf Life This product should be used within one year of the date of production.
Decomposition may start at 150 °C / 302 °F
HANDLING, STORAGE, AND INCOMPATIBILITY
Like any strong oxidant, LIQUOX® sodium permanganate should obe handled with care. Protective equipment during handling should
include face shields and/or goggles, rubber or plastic gloves, rubber or plastic apron. If clothing becomes spotted, wash off immediately; spontaneous ignition can occur with cloth or paper. In cases where significant exposure exists, use of the appropriate NIOSH-MSHA dust or mist respirator or an air supplied respirator is advised.
The product should be stored in a dry area in closed containers. Product should be stored above 50°F. Concrete floors are preferred. Avoid wooden decks. Spillage should be collected and disposed of properly. Contain and dilute spillage to approximately 6% with water and reduce with sodium thiosulfate, a bisulfite, or ferrous salt. The bisulfite or ferrous salt may require dilute sulfuric acid to promote reduction. Neutralize any acid used with sodium bicarbonate. Deposit sludge in an approved landfill or, where permitted, drain into sewer with large quantities of water.
As an oxidant, the product itself is non-combustible, but will accelerate the burning of combustible materials. Therefore, contact with all combustible materials and/or chemicals must be avoided. These include, but are not limited to: wood, cloth, organic chemicals, and charcoal. Avoid contact with acids, peroxides, sulfites, oxalates, and all other oxidizable inorganic chemicals. With hydrochloric acid, chlorine is liberated.
LIQUOX® sodium permanganate is compatible with many metals and synthetic materials. Natural rubbers and fibers are often incompatible. Solution pH and temperature are also important factors. The material selected for use with sodium permanganate must also be compatible with any acid or alkali being used.
In neutral and alkaline solutions, sodium permanganate is not corrosive to carbon steel and 316 stainless steel. However, chloride corrosion of metals may be accelerated when an oxidant such as sodium permanganate is present in solution. Plastics such
as teflon, polypropylene, HDPE and EDPM are also compatible with sodium permanganate.
Aluminum, zinc, copper, lead, and alloys containing these metals may be slightly affected by sodium permanganate solutions. Actual corrosion or compatibility studies should be made under the conditions in which the permanganate will be used prior to use.
When potassium permanganate is repacked, the packing, markings,labels, and shipping conditions must meet applicable Federalregulations. See Code of Federal Regulations-49, Transportation(parts 100-199) and Federal Hazardous Materials Substances Act, 15U.S.C. 1261.
LIQUOX® sodium permanganate is classified as an oxidizer. Sodium permanganate is shipped domestically as Class 70 and has
a Harmonized Code for export of 2841.69.0010
