Overview of Magnesium Stearate

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 cannot be dissolved in water, oil, ethanol, or ether. It’s primarily used as a moisturizer, anti-adhesive and glidant. It can be used to make granulated oils and extracts. Prepared granules possess excellent fluidity, compressibility and flexibility. As a flow aid in straight compression. It is also useful as a clarifier, filter agent, and foaming agents.

Resolve resolution:

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°C is reached. One-half cup of stearic is added to the reaction container. Another 500 parts were heated, stirred, and then the mixture of sodium hydroxide and water is gradually added. 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 prepared sodium Stearate solution. Stir well to form magnesium stearate. This solid then precipitated. The solid is allowed to settle, then the supernatant must be separated.

Second Method of Synthesis Of Magnesium Chloride And Nat STEArate

The 46.6 g. of stearic was neutralized using 164mL (1 mol/L) sodium hydroxide to produce 50 g sodiumstearate. Heat the solution of sodium stearate to 80° C. Dropwise, a solution was prepared by dissolving 20 gr of magnesium chloride 100 mL in water. 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 dispersed into benzene. The hot yellow liquid layer in the upper part of the product was removed and dried. The solid obtained was heated and evaporated to dryness.

Application Areas:

1. Magnesium-stearate is used to make medicines and products for health.

Magnesium stearate acts as an auxiliary ingredient. This novel material can be used to make film, thicken liquid suspension preparations, or for other purposes. Magnesiumstearate has no toxic effects and can be consumed. It can also be used to enhance health care products. It is commonly used in tablet coatings as it has the ability to release the product at precisely the time required. Active ingredient.

2, magnesium stearate, used in cosmetics

Magnesium stearate mainly finds its use in powdery cosmetics. These include blush, shadow, eye shadow and powder, as well as powder, powder, and powder. It may improve the adhesion or lubricity to different powders, especially when covering, smoothing, or stretching the skin. Adhesion, absorption, etc.

3. Magnesium steakrate is used to make food

Magnesiumstearate is mostly used to make pressed foods like tablet candy, honey tablets or dietary fiber 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 fields, such as coatings. It’s a good lubricating, disperssion stabilizing, and other auxiliary. It’s also effective as a dispersion stabilizing auxiliary, clarifying agent, thickener, suspending agent for liquid preparations and an aid to filtering.

Harmful for the human physique

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 reacting with gastric Acid to make stearic acids and magnesium salts. 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.
