Potassium permanganate crystals

Post by J » 08 Aug 2019, 10:18

Good morning, Brains Trust
I'm wondering if anyone knows if you can buy potassium permanganate crystals. Online catalogs don't specify and any that I have received is in fine powder form. I'm sure I used to buy it years ago as crystals. I tried to evaporate some solution to make crystals but it just goes back to powder. :banghead2:
Any ideas?

I am wondering about this too, I am sometimes asked for large crystals. I will try looking in chemists but J, can you tell me where you found them?

Sorry Milo I'm working in the office today. I'll be back at my desk tomorrow and will let you know where I found them. Can't remember right now.

Thanks, Shell1. We don't have a Chemist Warehouse anywhere nearby.
