Reactions in which Mercury(II) oxide is involved

  • HgO + H2SO4 "80^oC"--> HgSO4 + H2O
  • {M}O + H2{A} -> {M}{A} + H2O , where M = Cu Ca Mg Ba Sr Hg Mn Cr Ni Fe Zn Pb Co; A = SO4
  • {M}O + 2H{X} -> {M}{X}2 + H2O , where M = Cu Ca Mg Sr Ba Hg Mn Cr Ni Fe Cd Zn Pb; X = Cl F Br I
  • HgO + 2HNO3 -> Hg(NO3)2 + H2O
  • 2Hg(NO3)2 "<360^oC"--> 2HgO + 4NO2"|^" + O2"|^"
