Magnesium chloride hexahydrate is the hydrated form of magnesium chloride with a formula MgCl2.6H2O. These salts are typical ionic halides, being highly soluble in water. it can be extracted from brine or seawater. this material is a mineral supplement used to prevent and treat low amounts of magnesium in the blood and a versatile compound with a number of uses in food preparation, health, and personal well-being areas. it is also used in road care, to synthesize other magnesium compounds, to remove dyes and industrial dye wastes, for the dust control, in the textile production, and as an industrial dye and dye waste remover. Magnesium chloride hexahydrate is used as a catalyst for organic synthesis, e.g.
chemical and physical properties of magnesium chloride
In the table below some of the chemical and physical properties of this product are mentioned. all data that is mentioned in this table is gathered from Wikipedia website:
Application of Magnesium Chloride hexahydrate
- Lower rate of accidents due to the prevention of accidents caused by ice on roads.
- Simply apply to the roads for anti-icing.
- Roads with longer service life, due to the reduced loss of material and dust emission.
- Better health and physical conditions due to a lower impact of dust in suspension.
- Greater security, visibility and stabilization operations.
Magnesium chloride hexahydrate has been used to prepare a renaturation buffer that is employed for the renaturation of denatured peptidoglycan (PGN) hydrolytic enzymes. It may be used as a catalyst in the preparation of 3,4-dihydropyridine-2-(1H)-ones.
