Potassium permanganate is an inorganic compound and it is a purplish-black crystalline solid, that dissolves in water to give intensely pink or purple solutions.

Potassium permanganate is widely used in chemical industry and laboratories as a strong oxidizing agent, and also in medical uses as a medication for dermatitis, for cleaning wounds, and general disinfection.
Used extensively in the water treatment industry. It is used as a regeneration chemical to remove iron and hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell) from well water via a "Manganese Greensand" Filter.
Potassium permanganate is typically included in survival kits: as a hypergolic fire starter(mixed with antifreeze from a car radiator or glycerol and potassium permanganate), water sterilizer, and for creating distress signals on snow.
Potassium permanganate is added to "plastic sphere dispensers" to create backfires, burnouts and controlled burns.

The following acute (short-term) health effects may occur immediately or shortly after exposure to Potassium Permanganate:
* Contact can severely irritate and burn the skin and eyes with possible eye damage.
* Breathing Potassium Permanganate can irritate the nose and throat.
