Magnesium, or also magnesium octadecanoic is a magnesium derivative. It is made of magnesium and sodium. It is a fine, white powder without any sand. This product does not dissolve in water or alcohol and it is mostly used as a moisturizer, anti-adhesive and glidant. It can be used to make granulations of oil extracts and oils. As a flow aid in straight compression. It is also useful as a clarifier, filter, clarification agent, foaming agent, thickener for liquid preparations, as well as as a suspending or thickening agent.
Step 1: Synthesis Of Magnesium Sulfate And Sodium Stearate
For sodium stearate preparation, 1.25 parts of sodium Hydroxide are dispersed in 50 parts. Finally, the temperature of 85 degrees C is reached. Five hundred and fifty parts of stearic- acid are added to a vessel. After the water has been heated, the mixture is stirred to make the final stage. Keep the product sodium stearate warm until you use it.
Second, mix 15 parts of magnesium Sulfate in 150 parts water. Once the temperature reaches 55 degrees C, slowly add the mixture to the sodium Stearate solution. Stir well to form magnesium stearate. This solid then precipitated. Once this is done, separate the supernatant, let it sit, then wash with water. Then centrifuge at 80 to85 deg C for a final product.
Second Method of Synthesis Of Magnesium Chloride And Nat stearate
The 46.6 g. of stearic was neutralized using 164 mL a 1 mole/L sodium hydrogenxide solution. To get 50 g, the sodium stearate was dissolved in 2 Ls of water. Heat the solution of sodium stearate to 80° C. Dropwise, a solution prepared from 20 grams of magnesium chloride and 100 mL water was added. After constant stirring, precipitate quickly developed. After cooling it, the product was filtered out, washed twice with water until no chlorine ions were found, and then washed once more with ethanol. 10 g of the product was placed in a vacuum desiccator in which concentrated sulfuric acid was set for four weeks to obtain a product A [Mg(C18H35O2)2·2H2O]. Rest of the product was heated at reflux for 20 minutes and then disintegrated in benzene. The hot yellow liquid layer in the upper part of the product was removed and dried. To create B[Mg(C18H35O2)2 ].
1. Magnesium-stearate has been used in medical and healthcare products
Magnesium stearate can serve as an auxiliary ingredient that is novel and versatile. This material can be used, for example, to make a film, thicken liquid preparations for suspensions, or for making suspensions. Magnesiumstearate has no toxic effects and is easily digestible. It can also be used to enhance health products. The film coating is applied to tablets as it helps release the products in the most efficient way. Active ingredient.
2, magnesium stearate, used in cosmetics
Magnesium.stearate has a primary use in powdery cosmetics. Magnesium Stearate is able to enhance adhesion, flexibility, and stretch of powders, especially when used for covering, smoothing, or stretching. Adhesion, absorption, etc.
3. Magnesium steakrate is used to make food
Magnesiumstearate is mostly used to make pressed foods like tablet candy, milk tabs, nuts chips, dietary fiber, honey, tablets and tablets. This can help improve the texture and fluidity of the product. With gloss, the pressed tablets are smooth and complete.
4. Magnesium stearate also finds wide use in other industries, such as coatings, plastics rubber, textiles, and many others. It’s a good lubricating, disperssion stabilizing, and other auxiliary. It’s also useful for clarifying, filtering, thickening liquid preparations and as a suspension agent.
Harmful for the human body
Magnesium starate is insoluble with organic solutions and water. However it dissolves in hot alcohol and acids. Ingestion of magnesium stearate by the body results in magnesium stearate being chemically reactive with gastric Acid to form magnesium chloride. Magnesium Chloride dissolves in water. Therefore, sweat and urine can flush the magnesium stearate from the body. Stearic Acid can then be taken by the body. It is therefore safe to consume magnesium stearate.
