Abstract:

By the IR spectrum method it was established that the final product of thermal dehydration of MgH2PO42.2H2O is the cyclic tetrametaphosphate of magnesium. Acid ortho- and pyrophosphates of magnesium appear as intermediate condensation products. A diagram of the process of dehydration of MgH2PO42.2H2O is given. Thermal dehydration of CaH2PO42.H2O leads to the formation at 450-500 of an amorphous metaphosphate of calcium of the type Metal II PO32n, passing to the crystalline state at 600C. The formation of complex mixtures of calcium polyphosphates is characteristic for temperatures below 400C. Author
