Magnesium Chloride (MgCl₂)
Magnesium Chloride (MgCl₂) is used in a wide variety of industries and has many applications. Some of the many uses include being used in disinfectants, fire extinguishers, and paper manufacturing. It is the raw material for many reagents and auxiliary raw material for the synthesis of medical and fine chemicals. Magnesium chloride is used as a flux agent for the refinement of alloys of aluminum, magnesium, etc., and as a desiccant for automobile components, precision electronic devices, and other higher-end items. It is a polymerization catalyst support for polyolefin-based resin and in a polymerase chain reaction (PCR). It is used as a catalyst for chemical synthesis (Lewis acid catalysts) and hydrogen storage.
