    Well, if i remember from my days in organic chem lab, we use \[KMNO_{4}\] to determine whether there's an alkene or the presence of an alkene. the KMNO_4 would react with the double bond and the solution would change from purple to colorless to indicate that the KMNO4 reacted with the double bond.

    from my experience, it would definitely change color when reacted with ethylene

    it's a strong oxidizer so it's gonna steal electrons from wherever it can, double bonds especially
