Potassium permanganate can be prepared from the fusion of pyrolusite ore(MnO_{2}) with an alkali metal hydroxide and an oxidising agent (like KNO_{3}).

This gives dark green K_{2}MnO_{4}. It disproportionates in acidic or neutral medium to give permanganate.

\\2MnO_{2}+4KOH+O_{2}\rightarrow 2K_{2}MnO_{4}+2H_{2}O\\ 3MnO_{4}^{2-}+4H^{+}\rightarrow 2MnO_{4}^{-}+MnO_{2}+H_{2}O
