What is Manganese Dioxide? Manganese dioxide The inorganic compound MnO2 is a powdery black substance that has the chemical formula. It’s insoluble with water, weak acids and bases, cold sulfuric or nitric acids. It’s used in the production of manganese, but also as an oxidizer or rust remover.
Manganese Dioxide Preparation
Manganese dioxide can be obtained mainly by smelting soft manganese ores. Manganese sulfate is electrolyzed to produce the compound. Both soft and hard manganese ore may be used as raw material. Preparation of manganese-sulfate solutions includes leaching and iron removal. Neutralization, heavy metal extraction, filtration and static removal of magnesium and calcium are also included. After high temperature electrolysis, crude product is produced. Then, after treatment, including stripping and crushing, washing and neutralization, drying and other processes, crystals are obtained. When using manganese chloride solution electrolysis can produce fibrous manganese dioxide. The pyrolysis of manganese, manganese carbate, and manganese nitrogen is also possible. These are produced by oxidants, such as sodium chlorate or chlorine gas. The combined reaction is a separate process.
Manganese dioxide – Applications
Manganese dioxide is used as a depolarizing and oxidizing agent in synthetic industry. It can also be used to color glass and enamel, as well decolorizing and deironing agents. Manganese oxide is used for the production of manganese, special alloys and ferromanganese, as well as gas masks and electronic material ferrit. In the rubber industry, it is also used to increase the stickyness of rubber. It can also act as a catalyst in chemical experiments.
Use of Manganese dioxide for organic synthesis
Manganese dioxide This element is useful for organic chemistry. As manganese oxide has different crystalline forms, the formula is MnO2-x-(H2O), where x can vary from 0 to 0, and n could be greater or equal to 0. Manganese dioxide is produced by reactions between potassium permanganate KMnO4 and manganese Sulfate MnSO4 at different pHs. at different pHs.
Manganese dioxide can be used to convert alcohols to aldehydes. The manganese oxide will not oxidize the alcohol if it has a double-bond:
cis-RCH=CHCH2OH + MnO2 – cis-RCH=CHCHCHO + H2O + MnO
Even if a product is more reactive, it won’t be oxidized. Dialdehyde can be produced by oxidizing diols with manganese oxide. Manganese oxide can perform a wide range of reactions.
Uses of Manganese Dioxide in Laboratory
As a catalyst for the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide into oxygen.
Use as a decomposition catalyst by heating potassium chlorate to produce oxygen.
Aluminothermic Reaction with Monolithic Aluminum Powder to Produce Manganese.
Yellow glass, for example, is used as a colorant.
Makes chlorine gas when heated concentrated hydrochloric acids is reacted with.
Produces potassium manganate when reacting with molten caustic Potash (potassium Hydroxide) in air.
Manganese oxide is used to autocatalyze the reaction between potassium permanganate and manganese.
Overview of Manganese Dioxide Toxicity
Poisoning is a health hazard: excessive manganese in the body. Acute poisoning in industrial production is rare, particularly in the extrapyramidal. Metal fume fever can result if a large quantity of fumes is inhaled over a short amount of time. This will cause headaches and nausea as well as high fever. Chronic poisoning is characterized by a variety of symptoms including neurasthenia syndrome and disorders of plant nervous function. Mental symptoms such as imbalances between excitation and inhibitory signals, and toxic psychosis are also common.
Flammability Hazard: This product is not flammable.
