What is Manganese Dioxide?
This inorganic compound has the chemical formula MnO2, is a dark amorphous powder (or rhombohedral black crystal), and is insoluble with water, weak acids, bases, nitric, or cold sulfuric acids. It can be dissolved under heat in concentrated hydrochloric to produce chlorine gas. 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 dioxide can be produced by electrolysis using high-temperature solution of manganese. Both soft and hard manganese ores are acceptable as raw materials. Preparation of manganese-sulfate solutions includes leaching and iron removal. Neutralization, heavy metals removal, 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. It is used for the production of manganese, ferromanganese, gas masks and electronic materials such as ferrite. Moreover, it is also used in the rubber sector to increase the stickyness of rubber. It can also act as a catalyst in chemical experiments.
Manganese dioxide is used in organic synthesis
This element is useful in organic chemistry. As manganese oxide has many crystalline forms, the form used for oxides can vary. The formula is MnO2-x-(H2O), where x can be between 0 and 0.5 and n greater than 0 can occur. 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:
The product won’t be oxidized even if its more active. 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.
In the decomposition reactions of potassium permanganate manganese oxide is used as an automatic catalyst for potassium permanganate.
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. The patient may experience headaches and nausea, as well as high fevers and sweating. Chronic poisoning is characterized by a variety of symptoms, including neurasthenia syndrome and disorders of plant nervous function. Mental symptoms such as excitation-inhibition imbalances, toxic psychosis and other severe conditions are also included.
Flammability Hazard: This product is non-flammable, irritating and irritating.
