magnesium methoxide is a useful reagent, a catalyst and precursor material for a variety of applications including thin film deposition, industrial chemistry, pharmaceuticals, LED manufacturing and other chemical processes. It is available in most volumes and can be customized to meet your specific needs.
Non-Aqueous Alkalizing Paper
Generally, magnesium methoxide is dissolved in dry methanol and then applied to the paper surface by aerosol spraying. This neutralizes the paper and reduces the amount of moisture in the air. The resulting magnesium hydroxide forms an oxide layer that slowly converts to magnesium carbonate. This product is often used as a paper deodorant to prevent fungal growth on heritage papers, which is also effective against cellulase and the enzyme raffinose.
A crystalline solid, soluble in dry methanol and slightly sol in water, the chemical formula is Mg(OH)2. The molecule has no valence and is stable at room temperature. It is an excellent crosslinking agent to form stable alcohol gels and is widely used in industrial applications.
Treatment of methyl cyanoacetate with varying amounts of sodium and magnesium methoxides gives an interesting dichotomy between pyridine, phenyl and hydroxybenzoate products. When sodium methoxide is used, the reaction gives a pyridine, but with magnesium methoxide it gives a hydroxyaminobenzoate.
When oxalate is replaced by phenyl cyanomethyl sulfoxide, however, the reaction gives a crossed 1,2-addition product, methyl 3-amino-2-cyano-4-phenylsulfinylbut-2-enoate. This product is sequestrated as a magnesium-derivative and has been found to be more stable than the corresponding oxalate.
