Description of key information

Potassium permanganate is a well known strong oxidizing agent. Reaction time is probably very short in contact with oxidizable substances as it could be the case of in real environmental conditions. E.g. potassium permanganate is not stable in presence of ferrous and manganese ions, as a strong oxidizer it will react with Mn2+ and Fe2+. Potassium permanganate will aslo react with natural organic material and some man-made organic pollutants, such as trichloroethylene.
Its presence in sediments is therefore not expected.
