Many people have doubts about whether ammonium persulfate is an oxidant or a reductant. In fact, potassium hydroxide manufacturers can tell you that ammonium persulfate is an oxidant.
Persulfate contains peroxy group and is a strong oxidant, which can oxidize Mn2+to MnO4 -.
Therefore, in addition to a large amount of ammonium ions and persulfate ions, there are also a small amount of hydrogen sulfate ions and sulfate ions in the ammonium persulfate solution. The solution is acidic when hydrolyzed, and adding nitric acid can inhibit the reaction from going forward.
