Magnesium nitrate Usage And Synthesis
Physical PropertiesThe anhydrous salt consists of white cubic crystals; density 2.3 g/cm3; very soluble in water. The dihydrate is white crystalline solid having density 1.45 g/cm3; decomposes at about 100°C; soluble in water and ethanol. The hexahydrate, MgNO3•6H2O is a colorless solid having monoclinic crystal structure and density 1.46 g/cm3. The salt is hygroscopic and very soluble in water and moderately soluble in ethanol.
Occurrence and UsesThe hexahydrate, Mg(NO3)2•6H2O, occurs in nature as mineral nitromagnesite. Magnesium nitrate is used in pyrotechnics; and in the manufacture of concentrated nitric acid to remove water and concentrate the acid vapors to 90–95% HNO3. It also is used to aid coating and prilling in production of ammonium nitrate. The salt also is used as an analytical standard for magnesium and a matrix modifier in furnace atomic absorption spectroscopic analysis. It also finds some limited application as a nitrogenous fertilizer.
PreparationMagnesium nitrate is prepared by the action of nitric acid on magnesium carbonate, oxide or hydroxide:
MgCO3 + 2HNO3 → Mg(NO3)2 + CO2 + H2O
Mg(OH)2 + 2HNO3 → Mg(NO3)2 + 2H2O
The salt crystallizing at room temperature after evaporation is the hexahydrate, Mg(NO3)2•2H2O.
ReactionsThermal decomposition of anhydrous Mg(NO3)2 yields magnesium oxide and nitrogen oxides. Heating the hexahydrate above its melting point forms basic nitrates, such as Mg(NO3)2•4 Mg(OH)2. The latter decomposes at 400°C, forming magnesium oxide and oxides of nitrogen. Magnesium nitrate forms addition compounds with a number of nitrogen-containing organics such as pyridine, aniline, and urea.
Chemical PropertiesMagnesium nitrate is white crystalline solid.
Chemical PropertiesWhite crystals.Soluble in water and alcohol; deliquescent.
DefinitionChEBI: The inorganic nitrate salt of magnesium.
UsesIn pyrotechnics; in the concentration of nitric acid.
General DescriptionA white crystalline solid. Produces toxic oxides of nitrogen if heated to decomposition. Used in pyrotechnics.
Air & Water ReactionsDeliquescent. Water soluble.
Reactivity ProfileMixtures of Magnesium nitrate with alkyl esters may explode owing to the formation of alkyl nitrates; mixtures with phosphorus, tin(II) chloride, or other reducing agents may react explosively [Bretherick 1979 p. 108-109]. Noncombustible but will accelerate the burning of combustible materials. If large quantities are involved in a fire or the combustible material is finely divided an explosion may result. Prolonged exposure to fire or heat may result in an explosion. Magnesium nitrate has been reported to undergo spontaneous decomposition in dimethylformamide [Bretherick 5th ed., 1995]. Magnesium nitrate tends to behave as a strong oxidizer.
HazardDangerous fire and explosion risk in contact with organic materials, strong oxidizing agent.
Health HazardExposure can cause mild irritation to the mucous membranes. Symptoms may include coughing and shortness of breath. Ingestion of large doses may cause dizziness, abdominal pain, vomiting, bloody diarrhea, weakness, convulsions, and collapse. Contact with skin may cause irritation, redness, and pain.
Safety ProfileProbably a severe irritant to the eyes, skin, and mucous membranes. A powerful oxidizer. Violent decomposition on contact with dmethylformamide. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx. See also NITRATES and MAGNESIUM COMPOUNDS.
Potential ExposureMagnesium nitrate is used in fireworks and in the production of concentrated nitric acid.
First aidIf this chemical gets into the eyes, remove any contact lenses at once and irrigate immediately for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting upper and lower lids. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical contacts the skin, remove contaminated clothing and wash immediately with soap and water. Seek medical attention immediately. If this chemical has been inhaled, remove from exposure, begin rescue breathing (using universal precautions, including resuscitation mask) if breathing has stopped and CPR if heart action has stopped. Transfer promptly to a medical facility. When this chemical has been swallowed, get medical attention. Give large quantities of water and induce vomiting. Do not make an unconscious person vomit
