Magnesium is strong and light in its pure form. Hence it can be used for several high volume manufacturing applications including in aerospace and automobile components. It tarnishes slightly when exposed to air and reacts with water at room temperature.
Magnesium nanoparticles are spherical black high surface area particles typically 20-60 nm in size with specific surface area ranging from 30 to 70 m2/g. These nanoparticles are also available in ultra high purity, high purity, coated and dispersed forms.
