Magnesium Metal - Powder
Pure Magnesium Metal powder
with a particle size of approximately 100 mesh. Magnesium is a chemical element; atomic number 12.
Magnesium powder is used to prepare Grignard reagents, which are useful in
organic synthesis, to remove Sulfur from Iron & Steel, and as a
reducing agent for the production of pure Uranium metal. Magnesium powder
mixed with an oxidizer produces Flash Powder, which was used as a source
of illumination in the early days of photography. This is different from
the Flash Powder used in fireworks, which uses a special form of extremely
fine Aluminum powder (Dark or German Aluminum) in place of Magnesium
signature required upon delivery.
