Mercuric Nitrate

Mercuric nitrate is a toxic colorless or white soluble crystalline mercury(II) salt of nitric acid. It was used to treat fur to make felt in a process called 'carroting'. It is an oxidizing agent. It is also used as an analytical reagent, in bronzing, as a nitrating agent, and in organic synthesis. It has antiseptic and miticidal properties; once used topically in the treatment of demodectic mange in dogs, but replaced by safer and more effective agents.

Mercurous Chloride

Mercurous chloride is a chemical compound. It is a component of reference electrodes in electrochemistry. It finds uses as a purgative (laxative), and in the preparation of insecticides and medicines. It has also been used to treat infections of intestinal worms and as a fungicide in agriculture.

Mercury

Mercury is the only metal that is liquid at standard conditions for temperature and pressure. It is used primarily for the manufacture of industrial chemicals or for electrical and electronic applications. It is used in some thermometers, especially ones which are used to measure high temperatures. A still increasing amount is used as gaseous mercury in fluorescent lamps, while most of the other applications are slowly phased out due to health and safety regulations and is in some applications replaced with less toxic but considerably more expensive Galinstan alloy. Mercury and its compounds have been used in medicine, although they are much less common today than they once were, now that the toxic effects of mercury and its compounds are more widely understood. The element mercury is an ingredient in dental amalgams. Mercury, as thiomersal, is widely used in the manufacture of mascara. The largest use of mercury in the late 20th century was in the mercury cell process where metallic sodium is formed as an amalgam at a cathode made from mercury; this sodium is then reacted with water to produce sodium hydroxide. Historically, mercury was used extensively in hydraulic gold mining in order to help the gold to sink through the flowing water-gravel mixture. RoHS bans mercury from certain electrical and electronic products, and limits the amount of mercury in other products to less than 1000 ppm.

Mesitylene

Mesitylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon with three methyl substituents attached to the benzene ring. It is prepared by distillation of acetone with sulfuric acid or by trimerization of propyne in sulfuric acid, which, in both cases, acts as a catalyst and dehydrating agent. It is commonly used as a solvent in research and industry. In the electronics industry, mesitylene has also been used as a developer for photopatternable silicones due to its solvent properties. It is also a major urban volatile organic compound which results from combustion. It plays a significant role in aerosol and tropospheric ozone formation as well as other reactions in atmospheric chemistry.

Methacrylic Acid

Methacrylic acid is an organic compound. It is soluble in warm water and miscible with most organic solvents. Methacrylic acid is produced industrially on a large scale as a precursor to its esters, especially methyl methacrylate (MMA) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). Methacrylic acid was first obtained in the form of its ethyl ester by treating phosphorus pentachloride with oxyisobutyric ester. It is, however, more readily obtained by boiling citra- or meso-brompyrotartaric acids with alkalis. It crystallizes in prisms. Methacrylic acid can be used to produce homopolymers and copolymers. It can be incorporated in copolymers in order to lower the softening point and reduce the hardness. It also improves the adhesion of polymers used in paints and adhesives. Methacrylic acid is a carboxylic acid which can be used to produce methacrylic esters, methacrylamide, N-substituted methacrylamides and methacrylyl chloride by common methods.
