Storage areas should be equipped with emergency release equipment and suitable containment materials.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Synthetic method of Magnesium Methoxide?
A: Put 1L of dry methanol in a 2L flask with a drying tube (first distilled with Magnesium Methoxide). The flask was cooled in an ice bath and 3 portions of 3 g of magnesium were added and the reaction was allowed to go to completion. The flask was removed from the ice bath, fitted with a reflux condenser, and the solution was reacted with 8 portions of 1.5 g magnesium each. After cooling in the refrigerator, Magnesium Methoxide crystallizes out. The solution was decanted and replaced with dry methanol.
Q: What is Magnesium Methoxide?
A: Magnesium Methoxide belongs to a metal alkoxide and it is a water-sensitive solid compound. It is mainly used as a selective substrate for organic synthesis, as a neutralizer in anhydrous systems, and as the main raw material for preparing high-purity magnesium oxide. It is also used in catalyst, medicine, flavor and fragrance, food and other industries.
Q: Risk terms and safety information?
A: Highly flammable. Toxic by inhalation, in contact with skin and if swallowed, irritating to eyes and skin.Keep away from sources of ignition, wear suitable protective clothing and gloves. In case of accident or if you feel unwell seek medical attention immediately. After accidental contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
