Reactions in which Magnesium oxide is involved

  • {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
  • {M}O + 2HCN = {M}(CN)2 + H2O , where M = Mg Ca Sr Ba
  • Li2O + Mg "800^oC"--> 2Li + MgO
  • {M}O + 2H{X} -> {M}({X})2 + H2O , where M = Ca Cu Mg Ba Sr Pb; X = NO3
