The purpose of the research was to investigate the chemical oxidation of organic refractories with potassium permanganate. Permanganate oxidation of various organic refractories was investigated in deionized water and in modified natural river water systems. Controlled amounts and types of organics were reacted with permanganate under controlled conditions of pH, temperature, time and concentrations. Carbon chloroform extracts (CCE) and carbon alcohol extracts (CAE) were the two major groupings of organic refractories investigated.
