<br>Thank you for your question regarding the use of manganese green sand as a micronutrient.
<br>I believe that the green sand you are referring to is often used in water filtration systems. The chemical reaction results in removal of dissolved iron by binding it to oxygen, creating ferric hydroxide. Manganese is also removed to a lesser degree.
<br>From my experience ...

Solution Summary

The expert analyzes the chemical composition and solubility of Manganese. The micronutrient source for plants under the pH range are given.

Reactions of 3 Hydrocarbons: Cyclohexane, Cyclohexene and Toluene


it looks lilke a lot to read but it all comes together quickly. The actual experiment has already been performed and the results have been recorded in the table (last page). Please look at what is in RED color - that is what needs to be answered in a more elaborated conclusion/lab report form (but it doesn't have to be extensive at all...) Also, on the data sheet, please feel free to add any information - or make any corrections - based on your knowledge of these types of reactions with these particular hydrocarbons.

Thank you!
