Associations of Magnesia with other chemical compounds

  • No patient developed deep coma while ingesting either vegetable protein diet or neomycin-milk of magnesia plus 40-g meat protein diet [12].
  • For the purpose of improving the bioactivity of a magnesia partially stabilized zirconia (MgO-PSZ) and to explore a new technique for inducing OH group and apatite formation, a CO(2) laser has been used to modified the surface properties [13].
  • Rumen buffers, such as sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) and magnesium oxide (MgO), are known to correct the milk fat depression observed on restricted roughage rations, although by apparently different mechanisms [14].

Gene context of Magnesia

  • The Henrys of Manchester. Part 6. William Charles Henry: the magnesia factory [15].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Magnesia

  • Crystals of magnetite (Fe(3)O(4)) and periclase (MgO) in Fe-Mg-Ca carbonate in the Martian meteorite Allan Hills 84001 were studied by using transmission electron microscopy to understand their origin and evaluate claims that the magnetites were made by Martian microorganisms [16].
  • A high-expansion core material containing magnesia and forsterite may be used to make all-ceramic dental crowns with porcelain-fused-to-metal body porcelains [5].
  • The fixed partial denture framework was prepared with a magnesia-based mold material and a centrifugal casting machine [17].
  • Effects of the addition of magnesia powder into the exclusive investment on the adaptability of calcium-phosphate-based castable glass-ceramic inlays [18].
