The Characteristics Of Magnesium Sulfate
- Jun 29, 2018 -

Magnesium Sulfate is a compound with many uses. It is widely distributed in the geological environment in a mineral form of salt and can be found in ore or white solid matter on the earth's surface. In addition, marine and spring water also contains this mineral. Magnesium Sulfate is formed by magnesium and sulfuric acid molecules, the molecular formula is MgSO 4. In industry, Magnesium Sulfate can be obtained by dissolving magnesium carbonate in heated diluted sulfuric acid to obtain seven water.

Magnesium Sulfate is a colorless, tasteless material structure, slightly bitter. Can be highly dissolved in an inorganic solvent, such as water. At room temperature, about 700 grams of magnesium can be dissolved in one liter of water. The anhydrous Magnesium Sulfate has hygroscopicity, and it also has the tendency to absorb moisture from the air. Because of this characteristic, it is often used as a desiccant in organic synthesis.  Magnesium Sulfate has the effect of converting sound force into heat. In seawater, magnesium is mainly responsible for absorbing sound, which mainly affects high frequency sound.

Magnesium Sulfate has a very important application for hot compress.

Magnesium Sulfate wet hot compress has the function of diminishing inflammation and removing swelling, and is widely used in gynecological perineal minor operation and perineal edema after childbirth. However, the clinical observation found that the heat of wet compress gauze will spread quickly, especially in winter, this phenomenon is particularly obvious, affecting the curative effect. Therefore, it is suggested to use a hot water bag with 45 degrees centigrade, properly pressed on the gauze of wet and hot compress, and take away the gauze with the gauze after 30 min. It can keep the wet and hot compress better, and make it more obvious, easy to use, easy to operate, and feel comfortable.

Magnesium Sulfate is widely used in industrial production, agricultural fertilizer and feed additives are also used in Magnesium Sulfate. In addition, Magnesium Sulfate also has applications in the pharmaceutical industry.
