Selenium Powder

Selenium powder is a mineral used in various industries. The primary commercial uses are glassmaking and semiconductors. In addition to these, selenium is a part of several antioxidant enzymes. For example, the red color of selenium and its compounds cancels out iron impurities in glass. Se compounds are also used as an additive to plastics. …

Beryllium and Iodine Ionic Compound

Beryllium is a soft metal that is widely used in X-ray equipment and aerospace applications. In nuclear reactions, it is used as a moderator and as a reflector. It is also used in computer parts and gyroscopes. It is often combined with other halogens to make compounds. In addition, its melting point is quite high. …

Auto industry Nanoparticles as fillers in tyres can improve adhesion to the road, reducing the stopping distance in wet conditions. The stiffness of the …

Iridium (III) Acrylate Formula

Iridium (III) is a fairly rare element. It can be found in a variety of alloys, but is best known for its striking colors. It has a reputation for being a good conductor in certain situations. For example, it does not react with any acid. However, it will do so in the presence of a …

Synthesis of Nanodiamond Powder By Detonation Method And The Application In Various Fields

Soviet scientists had discovered in 1963 that nanodiamonds powder was possible from carbon-based explosives-caused nuclear explosions. The detonation process has been used to create this promising material since 1963. Synthesis – nano-diamond crystal powder using detonation method Hydrothermal synthesis or ion bombardment can produce nano-diamond in powder form, but the detonation process is quicker, has …

Fast Charge New Discovery – Layered Crystal Tungsten Oxide Hydrate

It has been an important breakthrough in the field of battery research to increase battery life. However, there are many challenges that must be overcome. North Carolina State University is trying to figure this out. Their material was layered with crystalline, tungsten dioxide hydrate. This allows for the adjustment of charge transfer rates by using …

Structural properties and applications of titanium nitride

However, nitrogen has a very chemically stable nature. It can, however, form nitrides that contain many elements when given certain conditions. This is where the research on transition metals nitride and titanium nitride has focused. High electrical conductivity, superconductivity, and attractive color of titanium nitride are some characteristics. It’s also suitable for high-temperature materials such …

Why aluminium carbide has high hardness

What is Aluminium Carbide? Aluminium carbide also known as aluminum tetracarbide with the molecular formula Al4C3, and is a form of aluminium carbonide. It is an ionic, translucent, hard, yellowish brown, rhombic hexagonal crystal. At room temperature it doesn’t conduct electricity and has a complex crystal structure. It is possible to have 4,5-6 coordinated metal …
