Magnesium imide (MgNH) was produced by monitoring the decomposition process of magnesium amide with in situ neutron diffraction. Significant changes in the structure of magnesium amide are detected during heat treatment and eventually result in the formation of crystalline MgNH. A model for the crystal structure of magnesium imide (MgNH) is presented for the first time. Remarkably, magnesium imide offers unique structural features similar to the cyclosilicate class and can be described as a porous solid formed by a sequence of linked chains of face sharing Mg(6)N(6) hexagonal prism clusters.

The oxidation behavior of Cr(III) during the thermal treatment of chromium hydroxide in the presence of alkali and alkaline earth metal chlorides (NaCl, KCl, MgCl2, and CaCl2) was investigated. The am...
Recent improvements to SrAl2O4:Eu2+, Dy3+ phosphors have enabled the use of luminescent hosts with a stable crystal structure and high physical and chemical stability, thus overcoming the bottleneck i...
A synthesis route for the preparation of optically transparent magnesium fluoride sols using magnesium acetate tetrahydrate as precursor is described. The obtained magnesium fluoride sols are stable f...
This work is devoted to studying the mechanisms of formation of DNA-containing microparticles (MPs) during PCR. It was found that pyrophosphate, a byproduct of DNA synthesis, and magnesium cations are...
A growing body of evidence suggests that the regulation of cardiac ryanodine receptor (RYR2) by luminal Ca(2+) is mediated by luminal binding sites located on the RYR2 channel itself and/or its auxili...
Extreme magnesium deficiency is known to have an impact on the synthesis, secretion and/or action of calcium regulating hormones. Many older adults are at risk for less severe magnesium d...

To determine whether early intravenous magnesium treatment of patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction reduces mortality.
Magnesium chloride. An inorganic compound consisting of one magnesium and two chloride ions. The compound is used in medicine as a source of magnesium ions, which are essential for many cellular activities. It has also been used as a cathartic and in alloys.
Used as an indicator in titrating iron and for the colorimetric determination of chromium and the detection of cadmium, mercury, magnesium, aldehydes, and emetine.
Magnesium oxide (MgO). An inorganic compound that occurs in nature as the mineral periclase. In aqueous media combines quickly with water to form magnesium hydroxide. It is used as an antacid and mild laxative and has many nonmedicinal uses.
An element of the alkaline earth family of metals. It has the atomic symbol Sr, atomic number 38, and atomic weight 87.62.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of magnesium in the diet, characterized by anorexia, nausea, vomiting, lethargy, and weakness. Symptoms are paresthesias, muscle cramps, irritability, decreased attention span, and mental confusion, possibly requiring months to appear. Deficiency of body magnesium can exist even when serum values are normal. In addition, magnesium deficiency may be organ-selective, since certain tissues become deficient before others.
