This compound releases energy in the form of heat when it reacts with water it is because of the ability of this product that they are used when the streets are iced. i.e they produce exothermic reactions (Spallek, & Weingartner, 1990). They are also considered to be an environmentally friendly however it is still under debate (Klabunde, 2001). They have the unique ability to make the roads dry in the times of snow. It has a de icing property that has proven to be a boon to the drivers. It is the most preferred compound that is used during the times of snow. It is also preferred to be used in sidewalks and is used as a leveling agent (Nawy, 2008). It is also used in the construction industries. It is also found to be an excellent storage agent (Abad et al, 2002). It has been effective while storing ammonia in storages (Li, et al, 2008). This is one of the most favored chemical compounds by various industries. It is used as a substitute for magnesium sulphate in the agriculture and horticulture. They also aid in the production of chlorophyll. However there levels needs to be monitored it has been found that the excessive consumption makes the plants more susceptible to diseases. Not only in agriculture they are used in making bath salts along with Epson salts. The combination of the Epson salts and Magnesium chloride gives a soothing effect to the people (Touyz, 2004). It is also used as an important cooking ingredient in Japanese cuisine. Magnesium is important for normal functioning of the health of the people. Magnesium chloride can be used in the cases where the people suffer from magnesium deficiency. The effects of magnesium chloride in the human body have not yet been fully explored. However large consumption of this chemical compound will prove to be hazardous to the health of the people. So the level administered should be carefully monitored (Guerrera, Volpe, & Mao, 2009). In the civil engineering industry depending on the pore structure created, the salt similar to MgSO4 has many uses (Moukwa, 1990). It can be summarized that this natural chemical compound has a number of uses in many industries.
