Messi Biology is a manufacturer of many unique and specialty grades of magnesium hydroxide and magnesium oxide. Together, those two chemicals Mg(OH)2 and MgO are in a class of materials called “Magnesia”.
Magnesium forms many compounds. The oxide, hydroxide, chloride, carbonate, and sulfate are commercially important. They are used in ceramics, cosmetics, fertilizers, insulation, leather tanning, and textile processing.
Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate heptahydrate, MgSO4·7H2O), milk of magnesia (magnesium hydroxide, Mg(OH)2) and citrate of magnesia are used in medicine. Magnesium reacts with organic halides to form the Grignard reagents of organic chemistry.
The grades of synthetic magnesia produced by Messi Biology are listed in the table below. Please refer to our website for Product Data Sheets.
