Manganese Sulfate Monohydrate usually refers to the inorganic compound with the formula MnSO4·H2O. It is a moderately water and acid soluble Manganese source for uses compatible with sulfates. Sulfate compounds are salts or esters of sulfuric acid formed by replacing one or both of the hydrogens with a metal. Most metal sulfate compounds are readily soluble in water for uses such as water treatment, unlike fluorides and oxides which tend to be insoluble. Organometallic forms are soluble in organic solutions and sometimes in both aqueous and organic solutions. Metallic ions can also be dispersed utilizing suspended or coated nanoparticles and deposited utilizing sputtering targets and evaporation materials for uses such as solar cells and fuel cells. Manganese Sulfate is generally immediately available in most volumes. Ultra-high purity and high purity compositions improve both optical quality and usefulness as scientific standards. Nanoscale elemental powders and suspensions, as alternative high surface area forms, may be considered.

Production of manganese sulfate
260 million tons of this material was produced in the world in 2005. Manganese ore is extracted from manganese sulfate. The combination of potassium permanganate with sodium hydrogen sulfate and hydrogen peroxide also results in the production of this material.
In vitro, it is produced by the reaction of manganese dioxide with sulfur dioxide.
MnO2 + SO2 → MnSO4
