To reason about the kinect reaction you must consider the mechanism of the reaction. Honestly I can't say much about this reaction specificaly since the oxidation mechanism by KMnO4 is considerably complex and not much studied probably until graduate courses. I can say, however, that you can't reason about the reaction kinectics under the consideration of ...


3 nitrogroups of TNT are rich of oxygen, but the aromatic ring has only carbon and hydrogen atoms. Therefore oxygen of nitrogroups oxidizes carbon and hydrogen atoms. There is no principle difference between oxidation and reduction agens being separate molecules, or being different parts of the same molecule. Note that TNT, in contrary to e.g ...
