A critical review presented is of the literature concerning the use of acidic solutions of potassium permanganate to generate chemiluminescence during the oxidation of both organic compounds and inorganic species. A brief overview of the reagent’s historical origin is followed by a chronological survey of its analytical applications, from what we believe to be the first report in 1975 through to those published up until mid-2001. This review does not include those papers where potassium permanganate has been used either in alkaline conditions or in conjunction with other chemiluminescence reagents.
