Magnesium Oxide USP Grade Specifications:
MgO 40.30
Magnesium oxide CAS 1309-48-4

Magnesium Oxide, after ignition, contains NLT 96.0% and NMT 100.5% of magnesium oxide (MgO).

A. Identification Tests-General, Magnesium: A solution in diluted hydrochloric acid meets the requirements.

To pass the test.
Acceptance criteria: 96.0% to 100.5% after ignition.

Free Alkali and Soluble Salts:
Sample solution: Boil 2.0 g with 100 mL of water for 5 min in a covered beaker, and filter while hot. Allow to cool and dilute with water to 100 mL.
Analysis 1: To 50 mL of the Sample solution add methyl red and titrate with 0.10 N sulfuric acid.
Acceptance criteria 1: NMT 2.0 mL of the acid is consumed.
Analysis 2: Evaporate 25 mL of the remaining Sample solution to dryness, and dry at 105C for 1 h.
Acceptance criteria 2: NMT 10 mg of residue remains (NMT 2.0%).
Acid-Insoluble Substances:
Sample: 2 g
Analysis: Mix the Sample with 75 mL of water, add hydrochloric acid in small portions with agitation until no more dissolves, and boil for 5 min. If an insoluble residue remains, filter, wash well with water until the last washing is free from chloride, and ignite.
Acceptance criteria: The weight of the ignited residue is NMT 2 mg (NMT 0.1%).
Limit of Calcium: to pass the test.
Iron: to pass the test. --- NMT 0.05%
Loss on Ignition:
Sample: 500–1000 mg
Analysis: Transfer the Sample to a tared platinum crucible and ignite in the temperature range of (800C to 900C) ± 25C to constant weight.
Acceptance criteria: NMT 10.0%
Bulk Density and Tapped Density of Powders, Bulk Density: Using the procedure specified in the chapter, determine the bulk density of Magnesium Oxide.

Magnesium Oxide FCC Food Grade Specifications
MgO Formula wt 40.30
INS: 530 CAS: [1309-48-4]

Magnesium Oxide occurs as a very bulky, white powder known as Light Magnesium Oxide or as a relatively dense, white powder known as Heavy Magnesium Oxide. Five grams of Light Magnesium Oxide occupies a volume of approximately 40 to 50 mL, while 5 g of Heavy Magnesium Oxide occupies a volume of approximately 10 to 20 mL. It is soluble in dilute acids, practically insoluble in water, and insoluble in alcohol.
Function: pH control; neutralizer; anticaking agent; freeflowing agent; firming agent.

Labeling: Indicate whether it is Light Magnesium Oxide or Heavy Magnesium Oxide.
Identification: A solution of sample in 2.7 N hydrochloric acid gives positive tests for Magnesium.
Assay: Not less than 96.0% and not more than 100.5% of MgO after ignition.
Acid-Insoluble Substances: Not more than 0.1%.
Alkalies (Free) and Soluble Salts: Passes test.
Arsenic: Not more than 3 mg/kg.
Calcium Oxide: Not more than 1.5%.
Lead: Not more than 4 mg/kg.
Loss on Ignition: Not more than 10.0%.
