I learned that the melting point of Magnesium Acetate is 80 C and decomposition point is 288 C. So I wondered if it would be possible for electrolysis of molten Magnesium Acetate to get magnesium metal? At low temperature?
As I know, common methods of getting magnesium metal is by electrolysis of molten magnesium chloride at a high temperature ( 900 C), or by reduction of magnesium oxide by carbon at 2000 C which is a very high temperature. So I figured that electrolysis of its acetate would be a low temperature method. Is it possible?
