Alkali Earth Metal
Magnesium (Mg) is an item and element added by MineChem. It has the atomic number 12 and the attributes Stable, Alkali Earth Metal and Solid. It is used to synthesis some chemical compounds e.g. Magnesium Oxide or Talc.
Recipe[edit | edit source]
Since it is an element, it cannot be synthesized. However, it can be extracted from many materials, such as Stone, Cobblestone and Grass Block as well as some chemical compounds, with the Chemical Decomposer. It can also be produced with the Chemical Fusion and Fission Chambers.
Chemical Bucket[edit | edit source]
Magnesium (Mg) can be stored in space-saving chemical buckets.
Magnesium in the real world[edit | edit source]
Real Magnesium is a shiny grey solid, an element of the alkali earth metals, and a quantity element for the body, e.g. for the ATP-Process to produce energy. Furthermore, magnesium alloys have an important area of application in lightweight construction in the future, because the alloys are lighter than Aluminium.
