Manganese dioxide(Cas 1313-13-9) Usage


Manganese dioxide is a black or brown solid widely utilized for various applications. It serves as a catalyst and is predominantly employed as a depolarizer in dry cell batteries, making it a crucial non-metallic form of manganese. In traditional alkaline and rechargeable battery cells, manganese dioxide undergoes a redox reaction, becoming Manganese III oxide. Its versatility extends to applications in lithium-ion technologies.

Chemical Properties

Manganese dioxide ( MnO2 ) , known as pyrolusite when found in nature , is the most plentiful of all the manganese compounds. MnO2 is Iron-black to dark steel-gray or bluish mineral; black or bluish-black streak; metallic or dull luster. Soluble in hydrochloric acid. Manganese dioxide is an important component in batteries. It is also used in glassmaking to remove the green fint caused by iron impurities.

Toxicity evaluation

Inhalation exposure to high concentrations of manganese dusts (specifically manganese dioxide [MnO2] and manganese tetroxide [Mn3O4]) can cause an inflammatory response in the lung, which, over time, can result in impaired lung function. Lung toxicity is manifested as an increased susceptibility to infections such as bronchitis and can result in manganic pneumonia. Pneumonia has also been observed following acute inhalation exposures to particulates containing other metals. Thus, this effect might be characteristic of inhalable particulate matter and might not depend solely on the manganese content of the particle.

Physical properties

Black tetragonal crystals; density 5.08 g/cm3; Moh’s hardness 6.3; decomposes at 535°C; insoluble in water.


Acts as a colorant and decolorizer in the production of brick, tile, porcelain, and glass. It serves as a drier for paints and varnishes, a preparation for printing and dyeing textiles, and a curing agent for polysulfide rubbers.

Primarily used as a depolarizer in dry cell batteries, both alkaline and rechargeable, participating in redox reactions crucial for battery function. It is also utilized in lithium-ion technologies.


Pure manganese(IV) oxide (precipitate form) may be prepared by reducing permanganate ion with a manganous salt: 2KMnO4 + 3MnSO4 + 2H2O → 5MnO2 + K2SO4 + 2H2SO4 Manganese(IV) oxide can also be precipitated by oxidation of a manganese(II) salt using an oxidizing agent such as hypochlorite or peroxydisulphate: Mn2+ + S2O82– + 2H2O → MnO2 + 2SO42– + 4H+ Manganese(IV) oxide may also be made by thermal decomposition of manganese(II) nitrate; or from roasting manganese(II) carbonate in air: Mn(NO3)2 → MnO2 + 2NO2 MnCO3 + ? O2 → MnO2 + CO2 A highly active gamma-MnO2 can be produced by treating manganese(III) oxide with hot sulfuric acid: Mn2O3 + H2SO4 → MnO2 + MnSO4 + H2O Mn2O3 is derived from pyrolusite by heating the mineral at 600–800°C or reducing with powdered coal at 300°C.

Reactivity Profile

The stability of manganese dioxide is due primarily to its insolubility. It is, however, readily attacked by reducing agents in acid solution, for example oxidizing concentrated hydrochloric acid to chlorine. In hot concentrated alkali it dissolves to give a purple solution which contains an equimolar mixture of trivalent manganese, probably as (Mn(OH)6)3- and manganate(V), (MnO4)3-. Manganese dioxide is also one of the most active catalysts for the oxidation of carbon monoxide near room temperature.


Oxidizing agent, may ignite organic materials.
