I have a lot of trouble finding the products of these kind of reaction.

KMnO4 + H2O2 + NaOH --> ?????

Also, I don't know when the acid/base is used just to make the solution acid/basic and when it participates indeed of the reaction.

Thanks

Redox reactions are often different in acidic and basic media. There is no way to 'know' the products you just have to learn them.

(well there is, but it is complicated and involves Frost diagrams and redox potentials)
