Appearance：colorless or white solid
Water Solubility：0.29 g/100 mL (20 ºC)
Stability：Stable, but hygroscopic. Hydrolyzes in the presence of water to form hydrofluoric acid, which attacks glass - do not store in glass bottles. Incompatible with aqueous solutions, strong acids, strong oxidizing agents.
Storage Condition：Store in a cool, dry place. Store in a tightly closed container.
CAS No：7789-24-4 is an inorganic compound often used as an ingredient in a variety of industrial applications. This chemical compound contains four elements; oxygen, magnesium, beryllium and chlorine, in the form of a salt (magnesium beryllide) that exists as a crystalline solid.
This plant is most commonly used to manufacture fertilizers, as well as other industrial additives, light weight construction materials and coatings. Manufacturers also use it in the production of some consumer products, such as detergents, cleaning supplies, and cosmetics, as well as a variety of specialty compounds. The salt's molecular weight is 452.48 g/mol, which makes it ideal for use in many industrial applications.
CAS No. 7789-24-4 has a specific gravity of 2.529 g/cm³ and a melting point of 1790°C. Its most notable physical characteristic is its white color, which is largely due to its high magnesium content. This compound is also highly hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs moisture from the atmosphere readily, although this can be mitigated to some degree by making sure the compound stays in a sealed package until use.
At room temperature, CAS no.:7789-24-4 is a highly alkaline material and should be stored away from moisture, direct sunlight and most organic materials. It should also be stored out of the reach of children. Those handling the chemical should take the necessary precautions to protect themselves, including wearing protective clothing, protective eyewear and a face mask.
CAS no.:7789-24-4 has a variety of specialized and industrial uses, including as a desiccant material in medical products, a flux additive for aluminum smelting and a binder for glazed paper and carbon products. It can also be used to create a case-hardening layer on metals, aiding in the manufacture of weapons, as well as for total dry-lubricant systems and wood preservatives.
