Chemical compositionMn

Manganese (Mn) is an item and element added by MineChem. It has the atomic number 25, the attributes Stable, Transition Metal and Solid and is needed to synthesize a few compounds.

As upgrade for the Polytool, Manganese increases the mining speed as a shovel (+8), but decreases the the mining speed as an axe and for ores (-4).

Recipe[edit | edit source]

Since it is an element, it can not be synthesized. However, it can only be extracted a few chemical compounds, such as Potassium Permanganate which can be extracted from Purple Dye, with the Chemical Decomposer. It can also be produced with the Chemical Fusion and Fission Chambers.

Chemical Bucket[edit | edit source]

Manganese (Mn) can be stored in space-saving chemical buckets.

Manganese in the real world[edit | edit source]

Real Manganese is a silvery solid and an element of the alkaline earth metals. Manganese is a dietary element and a important element for human health, e.g. for metabolism and many enzymes. Further areas of applications are the steel industry and as luminescent material.
