SOLUBILITY DEMONSTRATION:2-PROPANOL & KMnO4.Addition of 18-crown-6 (C12H24O6)<br />
Crown ethers are cyclic polyethers that may be used as agents to promote solubility of inorganic salts in organic solutions. Potassium permanganate is insoluble in 2% isopropanol. The addition of the crown ether forces it to dissolve.
