Is manganese trioxide Mn2O3 an alkaline oxide?

Since 2022, Russia-Ukraine geopolitical conflicts have intensified, and global energy prices have risen sharply, with international natural gas prices hitting historic highs. As the most important transitional energy source in the transition from fossil energy to non-fossil energy, the share of natural gas in primary energy has increased from 14.6% in 1965 to 24.7% in 2020.  The global gas price indices showed a unilateral downward trend from 2018, bottomed out in 2020, and remained low for a long time. However, since July 2020, the global gas prices have gradually fluctuated upward, and the impact of geopolitical events made the Dutch TTF gas price even hit record highs repeatedly.

An analyst of a securities company believes that the core catalyst of this round of global gas market lies in the lack of investment in upstream oil and gas resources caused by long-term low prices. Since 2020, although the epidemic has led to a decline in demand, the decline in supply has been faster, resulting in a large inventory consumption. In 2021, demand will recover faster than supply (the supply-side is less sensitive to prices, which will be reflected in investment).  

As the world's two largest gas Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 are also expected to change significantly.

Manganese oxide Mn2O3 overview

Manganese trioxide is an oxide with a chemical formula of Mn2O3 and a molecular weight of 157.88. Black cubic crystals. Relative density 4.50. Insoluble in water, acetic acid and ammonium chloride solution, soluble in other inorganic acids. It dissolves in cold hydrochloric acid to form a brown solution, becomes a red solution in hot dilute sulfuric acid or concentrated sulfuric acid, decomposes into MnO₂ and manganese nitrate in hot nitric acid, and decomposes into Mn3O4 when heated and releases O₂. It exists in two forms, α-Mn2O3 and γ-Mn2O3. α-type is obtained by decomposing nitrate, carbonate or chloride and hydride of divalent manganese in air by heating to 600~800℃; γ-type is obtained by heating MnO2 in vacuum at 500℃ for 78 hours, or By γ-MnO (OH) dehydration obtained. It can be used in the printing and dyeing process of fabrics, in the oxidation process of carbon monoxide and organic compounds, and can also be used to synthesize soft magnetic materials, or as an important base material for the synthesis of lithium-ion batteries.


"Not necessarily, for example: metal oxides such as manganese heptaoxide and chromium trioxide are acidic oxides, and metal oxides such as aluminum oxide and zinc oxide are amphoteric oxides, none of which are basic oxides; carbon monoxide and Non-metal oxides such as nitrogen are non-salt-forming oxides, and they are not acidic oxides."

Application of Manganese Oxide Mn2O3

Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 is a highly insoluble, thermally stable source of manganese for glass, optical and ceramic applications. Manganese oxide is a black/brown solid, high purity (99.999%) manganese oxide (MnO) powder and is the primary natural source of manganese.

Manganese oxide minerals have been around for thousands of years – used by the ancients to make pigments and clear glass, and are now used as manganese, catalysts and battery materials. There are more than 30 kinds of manganese oxide minerals distributed in various geological environments.

1. Mn2O3 has a wide range of uses and can be used in the printing and dyeing process of fabrics.

2. It can efficiently catalyze the oxidation of organic pollutants and nitrogen oxides, and catalyze organic coupling reactions.

3. It can be used as the precursor of soft magnetic material.

4. As a raw material for synthesizing lithium ion battery electrode materials.

Technical Parameter of Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 Powder :

Commodities such as crude oil, wheat, cotton, and nickel have rallied since Russia's "special military operations" began in late February. On the last trading day of this quarter, commodities were on track for their biggest gain since 1990. For this reason, it is expected that the price of the Manganese Oxide Mn2O3 will continue to increase.
