Magnesium oxide, also known as MgO or magnesium oxide, is a non-organic, ionic compound. It is a white, solid substance at room temperature. Magnesium oxide is found naturally in periclase. It’s a raw material used in magnesium smelting.
Magnesium oxide, or magnesia, is also commonly known as bitter dirt. Magnesium is an alkaline, or amorphous oxide. It has the same properties and characteristics as other alkaline compounds. A typical alkaline metal oxide with the chemical formula MgO is white powder (light yellow in case of magnesium nitride), non-toxic, odorless and tasteless. White powder. The melting point of this material is 2852. Its boiling point is 3600. Its relative density is 3,58 (25). Insoluble in alcohol and insoluble in acid or ammonium-salt solution. The solubility is 0.00062g/100mL (0 degC).
The two main types are light magnesium oxide (LMO) and heavy magnesium dioxide (HMO). Amorphous white powder that is light and bulky. It is non-toxic, odorless, and tasteless. It has a density of 3.58g/cm3. It is only slightly soluble when mixed with pure water or organic solvents. However, its solubility increases in water due to the presence carbon dioxide. It can be dissolved by acid or ammonium-salt solution. It becomes crystals when heated to high temperatures. When there is carbon dioxide present in the air, double magnesium salts are formed. The white or beige powder is compact and has a large volume. It is easy for it to mix with water and absorb moisture as well as carbon dioxide in the air. Mixing magnesium chloride solution with the gel is very easy.
High Purity Magnesium oxide
Application: High purity magnesia oxide exhibits excellent resistance to alkalis at high temperature and is electrically insulating. The high thermal expansion coefficient, thermal conductivity, and good light transmission are all attributed to the material’s high thermal conductivity. High temperature and heat resistant material widely used. In the ceramics field, it’s used as a material to make light-transmitting ceramic crucibles or substrates. It is used as a ceramic substratum, where it has a thermal conductivity that is two times greater than Magnesium dioxide, with tenths of the electrolyte lost. The raw material can also be used for the production of high-purity fusioned magnesia.
Application field: Nanoscale magnesium oxide is a material with a visible small size effect. It also has measurable surface effects, quantum size effects, and macro-tunnel effect. The agglomeration effect is eliminated after modification. It has many functions in optics and other fields such as catalysis, magnetics, mechanics, chemical engineers, etc. The material has many applications and a broad range of prospects. Nano-magnesium is used widely in electronics, ceramics. oil products. coatings. In different products they have different functions. The different products they are used in have different roles.
With the growing demand for high performance flame-retardant fabrics, synthetic flame-retardants offer the ideal material for the development and production of functional textiles. Nano-magnesium is commonly used with wood chips or shavings in the production of refractory materials, such as light weights, heat insulations, sound insulations, refractory board, and cermets. Nano-magnesium Oxide is a non-toxic organic flame retardant that does not emit odors and contains a low amount of phosphorus. It is the perfect additive to develop flame-retardant fabrics. The nano-magnesium used in fuels has the ability to clean, inhibit corrosion and have a good application in coatings.
Magnesium oxide is widely used for semiconductor electronic packaging because of its excellent properties in terms of electrical, mechanical and thermal properties.
