Is Magnesium Oxide reactive? If it is, can you please explain how reactive it is? Thanks so much!

  • Chemistry -

    One has to define reactive. Magnesium oxide hydrates easily, and is exothermic. It makes a great cement when mixed with magnesium cloride and water (with of course, sand, gravel, or whatever).
