Technology Process of Magnesium oxide

There total 7 articles about Magnesium oxide which guide to synthetic route it. The literature collected by LookChem mainly comes from the sharing of users and the free literature resources found by Internet computing technology. We keep the original model of the professional version of literature to make it easier and faster for users to retrieve and use. At the same time, we analyze and calculate the most feasible synthesis route with the highest yield for your reference as below:

synthetic route:
Guidance literature:
In gas; Mg was resistively heated to 700°C, and the metal vapor was entrained in an Ar carrier gas and allowed to react with N2O;;
Guidance literature:
With nitrogen oxidous; In gaseous matrix; byproducts: N2; dc discharge (potential 1.5 kV, current 50 mA) of a mixt. of hot Mg vapor, N2O and Ar, react. temp. 900 K, press. 3 Pa, color of emission changed from weak purple to green after evapn. of Mg; detection by IR spectroscopy;
Guidance literature:
In neat (no solvent, solid phase); at 400 ℃;
upstream raw materials:
