What is Manganese Dioxide?

Manganese dioxide

The inorganic compound MnO2 is a powdery black substance that has the chemical formula. It’s insoluble with water, weak acids and bases, nitric or cold sulfuric acid. It’s used in the production of manganese-salt, but also as an oxidizer or rust remover.

Manganese Dioxide Preparation

Manganese dioxide can be obtained mainly by smelting soft manganese ores. Manganese sulfate is electrolyzed to produce the compound. Manganese carbonate ore, as well as soft manganese oxide ore, can be used for raw materials. Preparation of manganese-sulfate solutions includes leaching and iron removal. Neutralization, heavy metals removal, filtration, and static removal for calcium, magnesium, etc. After high temperature electrolysis, the raw products are obtained, then, after stripping and crushing, washing and neutralization, drying and other treatments, qualified crystals are formed. When using manganese chloride solution electrolysis can produce fibrous manganese dioxide. The pyrolysis of manganese, manganese carbate, and manganese nitrogen is also possible. These are produced by the direct combustion of low-valent Manganese oxide with oxidants, such as sodium chlorate or chlorine gas. The combined reaction is a separate process.

Manganese dioxide – Applications

Manganese dioxide is used as a depolarizing and oxidizing agent in synthetic industry. It can also be used to color glass and enamel, and it is a decolorizing and deironing agent. It is used for the production of manganese, special alloys and ferromanganese, as well as gas masks and electronic materials such ferrite. Rubber can be made more sticky by using it in the rubber manufacturing industry. It can also act as a catalyst in chemical experiments.

Use of Manganese dioxide for organic synthesis

Manganese dioxide

This element is useful in organic chemistry. It is possible to write the formula MnO2-x-x(H2O), where x can vary from 0 – 0.5, and n can exceed 0. Manganese dioxide is produced by reactions between potassium permanganate KMnO4 and manganese Sulfate MnSO4 at different pHs. at different pHs.

Manganese dioxide can be used to convert alcohols into aldehydes. The manganese oxide will not oxidize the alcohol if it has a double-bond:

cis-RCH=CHCH2OH + MnO2 – cis-RCH=CHCHCHO + H2O + MnO

The product won’t be oxidized even if its more active. Dialdehyde can be produced by oxidizing diols with manganese oxide. Manganese oxide can perform a wide range of reactions.

Uses of Manganese Dioxide in Laboratory

As a catalyst for the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide into oxygen.

Use as a decomposition catalyst by heating potassium chlorate to produce oxygen.

Aluminothermic Reaction with Monolithic Aluminum Powder to Produce Manganese.

Yellow glass, for example, is used as a colorant.

Makes chlorine gas when heated concentrated hydrochloric acids is reacted with.

Produces potassium manganate when reacting with molten caustic Potash (potassium Hydroxide) in air.

Manganese oxide is used to autocatalyze the reaction between potassium permanganate and manganese.

Manganese dioxide toxicity: an overview

Poisoning is a health hazard: excessive manganese in the body. Acute poisoning in industrial production is rare, particularly in the extrapyramidal. Metal fume fever can result if a large quantity of fumes is inhaled over a short amount of time. The patient will experience headaches and nausea as well as high fever. Chronic poisoning is characterized by a variety of symptoms, including neurasthenia syndrome and disorders of plant nervous function. Mental symptoms include excitation and inhibitory imbalances and toxic psychosis.
