Is There any way ...


Recommended Posts

If you want useful answers, be more specific. Of course from any magnesium compound you can obtain the magnesium, but the effort required to do so may be very high.


In general, making magnesium out of its salt, is VERY hard for a simple home-lab. You need very high temperatures and/or a very strong reductor. Using molten MgCl2 (made from MgSO4 by precipitation of Mg(OH)2 with NaOH and then dissolving the Mg(OH)2 in dilute HCl and then evaporating to dryness) probably is the easiest way, but I promise you, this will be next to impossible also at home without the proper equipment.


So, practically speaking I would say: NO.
