.My name is Ben.
I wonder if somebody can give me some more info about kaliumpermanganaat (KmnO4). I I I did use it after the first distelation to get the amylalcohol( Pentyl Alcohol) out. I think that it makes the alcohol softer but how does it work.
I now that the amyl alc. Is changed into valeric acid (CH3(CH2)3COOH and brown coal (MnO2).
Does it also affect the ethyl- and methyl-alcohol?
Does anyone use this or now how it works?
