Magnesium Trisilicate

General Information:

Magnesium trisilicate is an inorganic compound that is used as an antacid in the treatment of peptic ulcers. It is also used as antioxidant, decolorizing agent and industrial odor absorbent. Magnesium Trisilicate has a variable composition corresponding approximately to Mg2Si3O8, xH2O. The trisilicate is rarely given alone and is usually combined with other antacids such as aluminum hydroxide or sodium bicarbonate.

Molecular Structure:


  •  CAS No.: 14987-04-3
  • Molecular Formula: Mg2Si3O8,xH2O
  • Molecular Weight: 260.86 g/mol
  • Synonyms: Magnesium Silicate Hydrate, Magnesium silicon oxide

Physical Property:

  • Physical state: White powder, Odorless
  • Solubility: Practically insoluble in water
  • Bulk Density(Tapped): : Between 0.3 gm/ml to 0.4 gm/ml

Application & Use:

Used as Antacid in Antacid Formulations. Magnesium Trisilicate is used as tableting agent or
coating agent for various drugs. It is used as raw material for Antacid formulations along with
Light Magnesium Carbonate as a combination. Also useful Antioxidant, Decolorizing Agent and
industrial odor absorbent.

Advantage & Disadvantage:

Neutralizes or increases gastric pH; reduces phosphates in urine, preventing formation of
phosphate urinary stones; reduces serum phosphate levels; decreases fluidity of stools. May be
harmful if inhaled. May cause respiratory tract irritation.
