Introduction: "Instant Cappuccino" With Hydrogen Peroxide and Potassium Permanganate

A reaction between Potassium permanganate (KMnO4) and Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) , in which detergent take the advantage of the Effervescence effect to create foam. Noted that Permanganate stinks the foam to brown, and the reaction is exothermic, which makes this reaction seems to be making "Cappuccino".

You need to crush the crystals first! Where is your copy of potion making by the half blood prince!!!

 My first encounter with Potasium Permanganate ( Condy's Crystal)was during my nursing days when I turned a patient's toes black for afew weeks! So to find it in the Cappuccino making search gaveme something to think about.
Frankly I'm rather disappointed. And disappointed is theappropriate word, for I can't see the point!  Sorry, and if I'mbanned from your site perhaps it would be the healthiest thing thatmay have happened to me... I'll side up with Voltaire andgo happily. But if this learned and enterprising elite grouphas an answer to help me to create simply a non poison, solid foam outof milk and without steam  I'd be delighted to know about it
MM :)

Use encapsulated pop-rocks with a timed membrane degradation.

It doesn't actually make a drinkable cappuccino. It just looks like a cappuccino.

This sounds really interesting. If you are finding the real, drinkable cappucino, sorry, this is not what you want. As I am a chemist, I deal with strange things with chemicals. In reality, chemistry is really linked with food and drinks, perhaps I can tell you more about real cappucino one day.

Now the real question is "How does this taste compared to a Starbucks cappuccino?" ;)

cforchemistry (author)Decepticon2009-09-16

To me, it is even more delicious than Starbucks one, which I will faint out soon after I drink! XD

Is die for? Sorry, I had to say it! ;P

cforchemistry (author)Decepticon2009-09-17

I am not sure if you will die if you drink, but for sure, to hospital!

Actually the permanganate crystals is powered, but you know, even the finest powder of permanganate is rough. Moreover, the container is much larger than the content itself, this explain that I have to spend some time to find the crystals.
