What role does manganese dioxide play in our lives?

Recently, covid 19 outbreak spreads in Shanghai, China. There are more than 25,000 new asymptomatic domestic infections every day. China is implementing a dynamic zero-out policy. A leading respiratory expert said the key to COVID-19 prevention and control is to minimize transmission and fatality rate. Omicron has a low case fatality rate but is highly transmissible and can still claim many lives in large outbreaks. "Total openness is not applicable in China.  For China, we should keep to the dynamic zero-out and gradually open up."  

However, "dynamic zero clearance" is not the pursuit of complete "zero infection".  As the Novel Coronavirus has its own uniqueness and strong concealment, there may be no way to prevent the detection of cases at present, but rapid detection and prompt treatment must be carried out, as soon as one case is found, one case will be dealt with.  

The situation in Shanghai is serious. As the financial center of China, Shanghai is a very important city, and the outbreak of the epidemic in Shanghai will put a great impact on China's economy.  The current task is to contain the spread of the epidemic as soon as possible, to achieve social zero so that Shanghai's life and economy quickly return to normal.  

As China plays an important role in the global supply chain, the outbreak will have a significant impact on the supply and prices of many manganese dioxide.

Overview of manganese dioxide

Manganese oxide is an inorganic compound with the molecular formula of manganese dioxide. This black or brown solid naturally exists as the mineral pyrolusite, which is the main ore of manganese and a component of manganese nodules. The main use of MnO2 is for dry batteries, such as alkaline batteries and zinc-carbon batteries. MnO2 is also used as a precursor for pigments and other manganese compounds (such as KMn4). It is used as a reagent in organic synthesis, for example for the oxidation of allyl alcohol. MnO2 is an alpha polymorph that can incorporate various atoms (and water molecules) in the "tunnels" or "channels" between the manganese oxide octahedra. People are very interested in α-MnO2 as a possible cathode for lithium ion batteries. Several polymorphs and hydrated forms of MnO2 are claimed. Like many other dioxides, MnO2 crystallizes in the rutile crystal structure (this polymorph is called pyrolusite or β-MnO2), with a three-coordinate oxide and an octahedral metal center. MnO2 has a non-stoichiometric characteristic: hypoxia. The complex solid-state chemistry of this material is related to the amount of "freshly prepared" MnO2 in organic synthesis.

 There are several preparation methods. One method is to start with natural manganese dioxide and then use dinitrogen tetroxide and water to convert it into a manganese (II) nitrate solution. The evaporation of water leaves crystallized nitrates. At a temperature of 400°C, the salt decomposes, releasing N2O4 and leaving a purified manganese dioxide residue. Naturally occurring manganese dioxide contains impurities and a considerable amount of manganese(III) oxide. Only a limited number of deposits contain the γ modification in purity sufficient for the battery industry. Production of batteries and ferrite (two of the primary uses of manganese dioxide) requires high purity manganese dioxide. Batteries require "electrolytic manganese dioxide" while ferrites require "chemical manganese dioxide".

Applications of manganese dioxide

The main use of MnO2 is as a component of dry batteries: alkaline batteries (so-called Leclanché batteries) or zinc-carbon batteries. Approximately 500,000 tons are consumed annually for this purpose. Other industrial applications include the use of MnO2 as inorganic pigments in ceramic and glass manufacturing. Thus far, researchers have focused exclusively on the color properties of manganese oxides, however, decorative use might imply that any black material soft enough to mark and resilient enough for the mark to remain could have been used. Indeed, both carbon-rich materials and black manganese ores were used in the production of Upper Palaeolithic cave art.

 Manganese dioxide is specially used as an oxidant in organic synthesis. The effectiveness of the reagent depends on the preparation method, which is a typical problem with other heterogeneous reagents, where surface area and other variables are an important factor. Manufacturing bad reagents. However, in general, the reagent is produced in situ by treating the KMnO4 aqueous solution with Mn(II) salt (usually sulfate). The configuration of the double bond in the reaction is conservative. The corresponding alkynol is also a suitable substrate, although the resulting propargyl aldehyde can be very active. Benzoic acid and even unactivated alcohol are also good substrates. 1,2-diol is cleaved by MnO2 into dialdehyde or diketone. In addition, the applications of MnO2 are diverse. It can be applied to a variety of reactions, including amine oxidation, aromatization, oxidative coupling and thiol oxidation.

Due to the limited total amount of traditional energy, people have a huge demand for cleaner and greener new energy alternatives. Now, the emergence of graphene is unlocking the possibility of its application in the energy field, which can create a greener, more efficient, and sustainable future. Here Francesco Bonaccorso, Deputy Director of Innovation at the Graphene Flagship Program, explains how his researchers have developed a series of initiatives to bring graphene from the lab to the commercial market. Graphene has become a research hotspot for new materials in the 21st century. Graphene has been adopted by many industries, the most notable of which are healthcare and key material applications.

The development of graphene has brought huge fluctuations in the demand for manganese dioxide, and the demand for manganese dioxide will continue to grow in the future. You can contact us for the latest news on manganese dioxide.
