It is an oxidizing agent. Potassium permanganate is a treatment method at the point-of-entry treatment.

What did you say oxidation-reduction or redox? The loss of electrons is oxidation.

Diwa said:   8 years ago
Oxidation is a process in which exchange of electrons takes place from one reaction to another.

Oxidation is gain of oxygen. Oxidising agents give oxygen to another substance.

Give the chemical reaction for water & Potassium permagnate?

An oxidizing agent (also called an oxidant, oxidizer or oxidiser) can be defined as a substance that removes electrons from another reactant in a redox chemical reaction. The oxidizing agent is "reduced" by taking electrons onto itself and the reactant is "oxidized" by having its electrons taken away. Oxygen is the prime example of an oxidizing agent, but it is only one among many.
