CAS NO.: 13446-18-9
Chemical Formula: Mg(NO3)2·6H2O
Molecular Weight: 256.40
Form: White crystal
|Magnesium nitrate content||98.0% min|
|Chloride ( Cl- )||0.01% max|
The transparent monoclinic crystal is very soluble in water, ethanol, liquid ammonia and ethyl alcohol. It is stable in 15℃-20℃ temperature and has a relative density of 1.461. It will generate magnesium nitrate above its melting point of 95°C. It dissolves in 300°C temperature and will decompose to magnesium oxide and nitric oxide gas above 400°C.
It can be used as the dehydrant of concentrated nitric acid, catalyst , fogging agent, explosive as well as the raw material of nitrate salt and nitrates.
Calcium nitrate should be packed in 25kg or 1000kg plastic bag. Customized bags are available.
