Global Magnesium Sulfate Market: Snapshot

Magnesium sulfate (anhydrous) is an inorganic salt made up of magnesium, oxygen, and sulfur. The molecular formula of magnesium sulfate is MgSO4. Magnesium sulfate is also known as Epsom salt (heptahydrate), English salt, and Bitter salt. Magnesium sulfate also occurs in hydrated forms, including monohydrate and heptahydrate. The monohydrate and heptahydrate forms contain one and seven H2O molecules, respectively. Magnesium sulfate is commonly encountered as the heptahydrate sulfate mineral epsomite. It is usually called as Epsom salt. Magnesium sulfate exists as white crystalline solid. Magnesium sulfate shows very high solubility in water. Magnesium sulfate is odorless. Magnesium sulfate can be prepared artificially by neutralizing sulfuric acid with magnesium carbonate or oxide to obtain the heptahydrate form, but it is usually obtained directly from natural sources. The only known method for preparing anhydrous magnesium sulfate is by the dehydration of a hydrate.

In gardening and other agriculture processes, magnesium sulfate plays an important role to correct magnesium or sulfur deficiency in soil. Magnesium sulfate is important component of various fertilizers. Magnesium is an essential element in the chlorophyll molecule, and sulfur is another important micronutrient. Magnesium sulfate is also effective in the removal of splinters. Magnesium sulfate is an effective anticonvulsant drug. Magnesium sulfate is well known for its application as most effective, low cost, and safe treatment available for severe pre-eclampsia and eclampsia.
