Mg from C10H6MgN4O8

Recommended Posts

Any ideas what chemicals will be created? Do you thing that if I add H2SO4 it will produce MgSO4?

CO, CO2, NO, NO2, etc. etc.

There is a difference between a magnesium ion, which is what is present in a magnesium salt, and metallic magnesium.  Do you know what it is?

Well ion is a particle with positive charge (usually an atom that lose or get some electrons). In metals there are free electrons and the atom are in Bravais lattice. But I think that if we somehow get the Mg atoms they will group. For example it happens in electrolysis of NaOH.

You just have to heat it to high enough temperature..

Isn't the melting point of Carbon higher then Magnesium?

It is, but it must be pure Carbon. Carbon compound contaminated by other elements will release CO, CO2, NO, NO2, H2O, etc. etc. gases.

e.g. if you have MgCO3, after heating it to high enough temperature (>= 350 C), it will decompose to MgO solid and gaseous CO2

Magnesium ions would need two electrons each to become magnesium metal.  Wouldn't it be easier just to buy magnesium metal?
