Element Manganese

Manganese ElementIt is a chemical element with the symbol Mn and atomic number 25. It is not found as a free element in nature; it is often found in minerals in combination with iron.
Manganese is a transition metal with important industrial alloy uses, particularly in stainless steels.
Manganese atom is a manganese group element atom. It has a role as an Escherichia coli metabolite and a micronutrient.
Manganese is a naturally occurring metal that is found in many types of rocks. Pure manganese is silver-colored, but does not occur naturally. It combines with other substances such as oxygen, sulfur, or chlorine. Manganese can also be combined with carbon to make organic manganese compounds.
