The chemical formula for cesium permanganate is Cs2+. It is a silvery gold in color and has an odor that is described as “silvery” or “sparkling.” The substance can be easily dissolved in water, and it is widely used in the manufacture of tin-based compounds and other products.
Typical Uses and Applications
A strong oxidizer, it is in common use for redox reactions (permanganometry). It can oxidize an amine to nitro compound, alcohol to ketone, aldehyde to carboxylic acid and terminal alkene to diol. It is also used as a disinfectant. It is a cheap, safe and effective disinfectant.
Cesium Permanganate is available in numerous volumes including high purity, submicron and nanopowder forms. It is primarily used in pharmaceutical and industrial applications. American Elements produces Cesium Permanganate to many standard grades when applicable, as well as custom specifications.
When determining the molecular weight of a chemical compound, it is necessary to know its molar mass. This is calculated by multiplying the atomic weight of each element in the formula by the number of atoms of that element present in the formula, then adding all of these atoms together. Molecular weight can be found by using the formula weight or by referring to the periodic table.
