Magnesium Hydroxide MgO(OH)2)

Magnesium hydroxide is the inorganic compound with the chemical formula Mg(OH)2. It occurs in nature as the mineral brucite. It is a white solid with low solubility in water (Ksp = 5.61×10−12). Magnesium hydroxide, Mg(OH)2, is a white powder produced in large quantities from seawater by the addition of milk of lime (calcium hydroxide). Magnesium hydroxide is a common component of antacids, such as milk of magnesia. Rudraksha is manufacturer and exporter of Magnesium Hydroxide, which has various industrial and medical uses.
Industrial UsesSpecification SheetMSDSPicturesVideo
  • Waste water treatment: Magnesium hydroxide powder is used industrially to neutralize acidic wastewaters.[21] It is also a component of the Biorock method of building artificial reefs.
  • Fire retardant: Natural magnesium hydroxide (brucite) is used commercially as a fire retardant. Most industrially used magnesium hydroxide is produced synthetically. Like aluminium hydroxide, solid magnesium hydroxide has smoke suppressing and flame retardant properties.
  • Medical Uses: Magnesium hydroxide is marketed for medical use as chewable tablets, as capsules, powder, and as liquid suspensions, sometimes flavored. These products are sold as antacids to neutralize stomach acid and relieve indigestion and heartburn. It also is a laxative to alleviate constipation. As a laxative, the osmotic force of the magnesia acts to draw fluids from the body. High doses can lead to diarrhea, and can deplete the body’s supply of potassium, sometimes leading to muscle cramps.
