Category

  • -

Manganese carbonate is a natural occurring inorganic chemical compound from the mineral Rhdochrosite with the chemical formula of MnCO3. Manganese carbonate is insoluble in water and most of the carbonates solution. Manganese carbonate is an essential compound for aerobic life and it is not considered as toxic chemical compound.

 

Benefits:

  • Plays a role in bone mineralisation

  • Regulates protein and energy metabolism

  • Protects cellular structures from damaging free radical species.

Fertilizer Industry

Used in fertilizer industry to cure manganese deficient crops as an additive to the plants. Manganese carbonate is used in fertilizer industry as a trace element fertilizer.

Chemical Industry

Used as a raw material for the production of ferrite, catalyst of desulfurization, pigment of enamel, siccative of varnish, Phosphating process and the production of Manganese salts. Manganese carbonate decomposes with release of carbon dioxide at 200 °C to give manganese(II) oxide. This method is sometimes used in the production of manganese dioxide for dry-cell batteries and for ferrites.

Others

Used as a glaze colorant in ceramic industry and in medicine as a hematinic. It is used as pigment and for drying varnishes. Manganese carbonate is also used in the manufacture of medicine ancillary equipment and mechanical parts
