Alcohol + Potassium permanganate = Explosive reaction!

Please note that this video was made solely for demonstration purposes! Do not attempt to repeat the experiments shown in this video!
So, in this episode, I’ll show you an amazing reaction between Ethanol and Potassium Permanganate. For this reaction, we need Ethyl alcohol (C2H5OH), concentrated Sulfuric Acid (H2SO4) and Potassium Permanganate (KMnO4).
Firstly, let’s put some potassium permanganate into our evaporation bowl and add several sulfuric acid drops. After a while, strong oxidizer Manganese oxide (VII) is formed from potassium permanganate. Let’s take a droplet of manganese oxide and drip an ethanol droplet on it. At contact of alcohol with manganese oxide, alcohol instantly ignites.
Let’s do the same in this evaporation bowl. The reaction is very rough and sometimes is accompanied by an explosion. This is what happens: manganese oxide decays into manganese dioxide, and alcohol burns down forming a small amount of ethanal (CH3CHO).

  1. fuck you. I saw that fucking title and I instantly hyped. I literally have both alcohol and potassium permanganate. but then you had to add in that hard to fucking get sulfuric acid. Fuck you.

  2. Will HCL and KMNO4 combination give the same result as with sufuric acid ??
    And will every alcohol give the same result or just the ethyl alcohol???

  3. Please tell me how the red prosperous will burn or ignite itself with the power of chemical which mean which chemical we can use to ignite the match stick from the distance of 1 or 2 inches? without rubbing the match stick how i will ignite fire to match stick from the distance of 1 inch please tell me this is mail id [email protected]
