Magnesium and CO2 Reaction

A demonstration of the reaction between magnesium and carbon dioxide produces magnesium oxide and carbon. Comparison to combustion in air and a pure oxygen experiment.

00:00:03 A demonstration of burning magnesium ribbon in a CO2 atmosphere shows a reaction that produces magnesium oxide and free carbon as a soot. CO2 is reduced and magnesium is oxidized.

🔥 Burning magnesium ribbon in a CO2 atmosphere results in a reaction where magnesium is oxidized and CO2 is reduced.

⚪️ The reaction produces magnesium oxide and free carbon (soot).

⚫️ Squeezing the burning magnesium against the beaker wall leaves a black carbon stain.

00:01:14 A demonstration of the reaction between magnesium and CO2 compared to combustion in air, with an additional experiment using pure oxygen.

🔥 The reaction of magnesium with CO2 produces carbon residues.

⚪ Combustion of magnesium in air produces a whiter ash.

✨ Burning magnesium with pure oxygen increases the brightness of the reaction.
