The US President recently said the conflict between Russia and Ukraine had driven up the prices of all the world's major food staples, including wheat, corn, barley, oilseeds and edible oils, and that Russia and Ukraine together supplied more than 25% of the world's wheat exports and about 20% of its barley exports. 

To address the food shortage, the Biden administration says it plans to increase the number of counties eligible for insurance for double cropping. Double cropping is when farmers grow two different crops a year on the same field. 

Under Biden's plan, the number of counties eligible for two-season crop insurance would increase by 681, for a total of 1,935. 

The UN has warned that up to 1.7bn people are "highly exposed" to the domino effect of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine on the global food, energy, and financial systems.  The agency says conflict could increase hunger in countries where people are already suffering from malnutrition.

Even countries where food is less scarce are being hit by rising prices. U.S. grocery prices rose 1% in April, compared with a 10.8% increase over the past 12 months, the Labor Department said recently.

According to the White House, global food prices have risen nearly 13 percent since the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. 

Besides, affected by the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk MnO2 powder are still very uncertain.

What is Manganese Dioxide MnO2?
Manganese dioxide is an inorganic compound with the molecular formula MnO2. This black or brown solid is the natural mineral pyrolusite, the main ore of manganese and a constituent of manganese nodules. 
The main use of MnO2 is in dry batteries such as alkaline batteries and zinc-carbon batteries. Manganese dioxide is also used as a pigment and a precursor of other manganese compounds, such as potassium permanganate. It is used as a reagent in organic synthesis, for example, for the oxidation of allyl alcohol. 
 
What is Manganese Dioxide MnO2 Used For? 
Used as a dry cell depolarizer. 
Used as catalysts and oxidants for the synthetic industry. 
Used as colorants, bleaching agents, and iron removal agents for the glass industry and enamel industry.
Used for manufacturing manganese metal, special alloy, ferromanganese castings, gas masks, and electronic materials such as ferrite. 
Used in the rubber industry to increase the viscosity of rubber. 
 
Organic synthetic use:
Manganese dioxide is very useful in organic chemistry. Manganese dioxide is used as an oxide in different forms, because manganese dioxide has multiple crystalline forms, the chemical formula can be written as MnO2·x(H2O) N, where x is between 0 and 0.5, and n can be greater than 0.  Manganese dioxide can be formed from the reactions of potassium permanganate (KMnO4) and Manganese sulphate (MnSO4) at different pH values. 
One chemical reaction specific to manganese dioxide is the conversion of alcohols to aldehydes. Even if the alcohol has a double bond, it will not be oxidized by manganese dioxide: cis-RCH=CHCH2OH + MnO2 → cis-RCH=CHCHO + H2O + MnO 
No matter how active the product is, it doesn't get oxidized again. Diols can be oxidized to dialdehyde by manganese dioxide. Other reactions of manganese dioxide are very many, and can be used in the oxidation of amines, aromatic substances and triols.
 
Laboratory use:
Used as a catalyst for the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to produce oxygen; Used as a catalyst for the decomposition of potassium chlorate to produce oxygen; Manganese was prepared by aluminothermic reaction with elemental aluminum powder. Used as pigment, yellow glass, etc. Reaction with hot concentrated hydrochloric acid to produce chlorine gas; Reaction with molten potash (potassium hydroxide) in the air to prepare potassium manganate; In the decomposition reaction of potassium permanganate, manganese dioxide acts as self-catalyst of potassium permanganate. 
 
Is MnO2 Explosive? 
It reacts violently with combustible and reductive substances. This creates fire and explosion hazards. 
 
Is Manganese Dioxide Harmful? 
Strong oxidant. Contact with other materials may cause a fire. Harmful by inhalation or swallowing. May cause eye, skin, and respiratory irritation. May cause central nervous system effects. Inhalation of smoke may cause metal smoke fever. According to animal studies, it may cause adverse reproductive effects.
 
MnO2 Price
The price is influenced by many factors including the supply and demand in the market, industry trends, economic activity, market sentiment, and unexpected events.

Because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, there is a shortage of natural gas supply. At the same time, other renewable energy sources cannot produce enough electricity, so electricity prices have soared in many countries of the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the MnO2 powder would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
