Latest research on Magnesium Hydroxide

Suspensions of magnesium hydroxide in water are used as an antacid to neutralize stomach acid, and as a laxative. The diarrhea caused by magnesium hydroxide carries away much of the body's supply of potassium, and failure to take extra potassium may lead to muscle cramps. Magnesium hydroxide is also used as an antiperspirant underarm deodorant. Milk of magnesia is useful against canker sores (aphthous ulcer) when used topically.

Latest findings

Studies on Chlorella vulgaris (García-Pérez et al. 2014) suggested that the amount of Magnesium Hydroxide required for flocculation increases with increasing biomass concentration. [source, 2016]
For each treatment period, a single 400-mg dose (four 100-mg tablets) of posaconazole was given alone or with 20 mL of Antacid (2 g of Aluminum hydroxide and 2 g of Magnesium Hydroxide), Ranitidine (150 mg), esomeprazole (40 mg), or Metoclopramide (15 mg). [source, 2015]
All experiments were carried with Alum Imject®, which is a combination of Aluminum hydroxide and Magnesium Hydroxide. [source, 2015]
Our studies were performed using Alum Imject®, which is a combination of Aluminum hydroxide and Magnesium Hydroxide. [source, 2015]
Magnesium ions are also agonists of GPRC6A17, but to verify that the increased antibody concentrations in GPRC6A−/−mice are not due to the presence of Magnesium Hydroxide, we used Aluminum hydroxide as single adjuvant and obtained the same results. [source, 2015]
In layered Magnesium Hydroxide (brucite) [Mg(OH)6], the divalent M2+ ions are octahedrally surrounded by hydroxide ions. [source, 2015]
Following admission, laxatives (Magnesium Hydroxide, 10 cc, three times daily) and Oxygen (3 L/min) were given while she was bed-rested and advised against valsalva maneuvers. [source, 2015]
Given the large heat output of the reaction of Magnesium metal with water to produce Magnesium Hydroxide and hydrogen gas as shown in Eq 1 [8], several devices have been developed based on this galvanic corrosion including ready-to-eat meals for soldiers and several isothermal chemical heaters, such as those developed by the PATH team and the Liu laboratory [9–11]. [source, 2015]
The result indicates that the corrosion products are composed of Magnesium Hydroxide. [source, 2015]
The Cl− ions are small enough to displace water molecules in the hydrogen sheath and transform the Magnesium Hydroxide film into the more soluble MgCl2 by reaction (4), which promotes the dissolution of Magnesium49. [source, 2015]
