MnO2 is used as a colorant and decolorizer in glass, white ware, enamels and pottery. It is also used in battery cathode mixes and electronics. There is promising potential to use MnO2 in solid state lithium-ion batteries for automobiles. MnO is used in ferromagnetic ferrites and as a catalyst.
Berberine is a cationic alkaloid that was first isolated in 1917 from goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis), a North American herb of the buttercup family. It is found in the roots, rhizomes, stems, and bark of many other plants, including Berberisspp. (worldwide), yellowroot (Southwestern United States), and the Amur cork tree (East Asia). It usually exists as the chloride, but T. Kametani and co-workers reported the total synthesis as the iodide in 1969.
