Chemical name of SnMg2O4 ?

  1. Jun 28, 2014 #1
    Dear community fellows

    Can somebody help me in identifying the name of SnMg2O4 ?
    Other examples are ZnAl2O4 (Zinc Aluminate), ZnIN2S4 (Zn Thioindate).
    Kindly provide the reference if possible.

    Thank You
    Masood

    I would start thinking which of the two metals present is amphoteric.

    Dear Sir, can we call it as Tin Magnetate ?

    Is magnesium amphoteric, or is it strictly metallic?

    What are salts? What does it take to produce a salt?

    Magnesium here is metallic in nature. I surf a lot to find its name but couldn't find. I am a physicist and not very good at chemistry.

    I think calling it simply magnesium tin oxide would be also ok. At least in google some papers studying this compond show up.

    Yes there are some papers but none of them mentioned the name. Strange for me
