Description

Clear, deliquescent crystals that occur naturally as the mineral nitromagnesite. In a closed environment, a saturated aqueous solution of magnesium nitrate will form an equilibrium at a relative humidity level of about 55% (20C). Magnesium nitrate is also used in fireworks.

Synonyms and Related Terms

magnesium (II) nitrate; magnesium nitrate hexahydrate (CAS # 13446-18-9)

Risks

Dangerous fire and explosion risk in contact with organic material. Strong oxidizing agent.

ThermoFisher: SDS

Physical and Chemical Properties
