Why do we have to heat KMnO4 solution when we have to do the titration with the oxalate ions for such reaction?

  • Cemistry -

    Mostly its for the increase in reaction rate for the permanganate to oxidize the oxalate ion. Another reason could be, but it isn't a huge one, to help rid the solution of the CO2 oxidation product.
