Chemical Description

  • Manganese(II) sulfide, MnS, occurs in nature as the mineral alabandite (isometric), rambergite (hexagonal), and the recently found browneite (isometric, with sphalerite-type, ZnS, structure, extremely rare and is only known from a meteorite).
  • Manganese(II) sulfide can be formed through the reaction of a manganese(II) salt (such as manganese(II) chloride) with ammonium sulfide.
  • It has different color like pink, green, or brownish green powder(s) based on different purities and conditions, and there are three crystal(s) forms: α: green cub; β: red cub; γ: red hexagonal; used as an additive in steel production
  • It is used as an intermediate in chemical research & pharmaceutical research.
  • It is also used in additives in steel making.
  • With the development of high strength powder metallurgy iron-based materials, the requirement for cutting performance of materials is increasing.
  • Manganese sulfide is a good additive for iron-based materials with carbon content less than 0.8%.
  • As an important magnetic semiconductor, nano-MnS has potential application value in short-wavelength optoelectronic devices.
  • For the coatings and ceramics industry, with the development of high-strength powder metallurgy iron-based materials, the requirement for cutting performance of materials is also increasing.
  • For iron-based materials with carbon content less than 0.8%, manganese sulfide is a good additive.
  • As an important magnetic semiconductor, nano-MnS has potential application value in short-wavelength optoelectronic devices.
  • It can be applied as the release agent
  • Manganese(II) sulfide is a chemical compound of manganese and sulfur. It occurs in nature as the mineral alabandite (isometric), rambergite (hexagonal), and recently found browneite (isometric, with sphalerite-type structure, extremely rare, known only from a meteorite)
  • The crystal structure of manganese(II) sulfide is similar to that of sodium chloride.
  • The pink color of MnS likely results from poor coupling between the lowest energy unoccupied Mn orbitals, resulting in discrete states rather than a delocalized band.
  • Thus the lowest energy band-to-band electronic transition requires very high energy (ultraviolet) photons.
