Potassium Permanganate + Glycerin = Fire
To engage in fire-making:
Place approximately two tablespoons of potassium permanganate in a fire-resistant container or on a fire-resistant surface outside.
Add a few droplets of glycerine to the depression on the chemical’s surface.
Glycerine is readily oxidized and potassium permanganate is a potent oxidizing agent. The “exothermic” reaction commences when the glycerine boils and emits smoke. Eventually, a flame will materialize and spread across the potassium permanganate, consuming all of the glycerine.
