The oxidation of malonic acid with permanganate was studied under various acidity conditions. Analytical procedures, based on oxidation with excess reagent in a sodium carbonate medium and titration of the oxalate or manganese dioxide formed or of unconsumed permanganate, are proposed. On the basis of successive oxidation in sodium carbonate and sulfuric acid media, a titration determination, involving complete oxidation of malonic acid to carbon dioxide and water, was developed.
