Magnesium Bromide Properties

Magnesium Bromide



Magnesium Bromide is a chemical compound of magnesium and bromine that is white and deliquescent. It is often used as a mild sedative and as an anticonvulsant for treatment of nervous disorders. It is water soluble and somewhat soluble in alcohol. Magnesium bromide can be synthesized by reacting hydrobromic acid with magnesium oxide and crystallizing the product. It can also be made by reacting magnesium carbonate and hydrobromic acid, and collecting the solid left after evaporation. Magnesium bromide is used at a catalyst for many reactions, typically as a solvent or used as a Grignard reagent. It also has been used as a tranquilizer. Magnesium bromide was used to synthesize the first stable magnesium silylenoid.
