# Reactions of acidified substances

Case study: acidified potassium manganate(VII)

Does "acidified" suggest that the substance contains $\ce{H+}$ions?
If so, will acidified $\ce{KMnO4}$ react with a base, such as ammonia?

• Yes it will react, but it is the $\ce{H+}$ that is reacting, not the $\ce{KMnO4}$. Nov 8, 2015 at 15:09
