The chemical formula for manganese(II) acetate is C4H6MnO4. It can also be properly written as Mn(CH3COO)2. The chemical equation that describes the reaction to form manganese(II) acetate is written as Mn3O4 + 2CH3COOH ? Mn(CH3COO)2 + Mn2O3 + H2O.
In the chemical formula for manganese(II) acetate, the "C" represents carbon, the "H" represents hydrogen, the "Mn" represents manganese and the "O" represents oxygen. The number of each of these elements in the molecule is ascertained by the number after the chemical symbol. When the acetic acid reacts with the manganese oxide, the elements combine to create molecules with neutral charges.
