General description

Magnesium acetate tetrahydrate serves as a precursor for the generation of magnesium oxide and magnesium-containing oxides in the forms of thin-film, rode, and porous particles with a high specific surface area.

Application

Magnesium acetate tetrahydrate has been used:
  • as a precursor in the synthesis of MgCrMnO4 using a sol-gel method
  • as a component of stock solution, buffer 1, buffer 2 and buffer 3 for microsome extraction
  • as a precursor in the synthesis of MgCr2-xMnxO4 spinels using aqueous sol-gel reaction

Sharp-tipped anisotropic silver (Ag) nanostructures are attracting increasing attention because of their unusual optical properties. However, the sharp tips make such nanostructures thermodynamically unstable; thus, they have been considered unsuitable for use in colorimetric sensing because of their tendency to
