Element Properties:53-59 atomic number

CESIUM, IODINE, BARIUM, LANTHANUM, CERIUM, PRASEODYMIUM IODINE Atomic symbol: I Atomic weight: 126.90447 Atomic number: 53 Electron configuration: 2-8-18-18-7 Oxidation states: ±1, +5, 7 State of matter: solid Non-metal Discovered in 1811 by Bernard Courtois Boils at 184°C, melts at 113.5°C Notes: Iodine is bluish-black in color with a metallic luster, characteristic odor, and sharp […]


Applications of Silicon Carbide Ceramic

Silicon carbide (SiC) is a ceramic material that has found applications in a wide range of fields. It offers high-temperature strength, good wear resistance, small thermal expansion coefficient and chemical corrosion resistance. This type of refractory ceramic has many applications in the chemical industry, process engineering and energy production. SiC also finds use in the […]


Ultra-high temperature materials

What are ultra-high temperature materials   Ultra-high-temperature materials refer to the most heat-resistant high-grade materials that can be used as usual under severe environments such as stress and oxidation, and at an ultra-high temperature of about 2000°C. Research and application of ultra-high temperature materials    1. Refractory metal Refractory metals (W, Mo, Ta, Nb, Zr, etc.) […]


Crucible Types and Applications

Whether you are looking to purchase a crucible for your laboratory, research, or educational institution, you’ll find that there are several options to choose from. Some of these options include boron nitride, alumina, and zirconia. alumina crucible Compared to Alumina, zirconia crucibles are better in three aspects: high melting point, excellent chemical inertness, and good […]


Refractory Ceramics

Refractory ceramics are a material used in a variety of industrial applications at high temperatures. They provide strength, protection from corrosion, and thermal insulation. In fact, refractories are essential for manufacturing everything from hospital beds to ambulances. Not only do these materials provide strength and resistance to heat and chemicals, but they also contribute to […]


The Main Applications of PBN

Pyrolytic Boron Nitride, abbreviated as Pyrolytic BN or PBN, also known as Chemical vapour-deposited Boron Nitride, Chemical Vapour-deposition of Boron Nitride or CVD-BN, etc. As the name suggests, this is a kind of boron nitride prepared by high temperature pyrolysis reaction by chemical vapor deposition method. Pyrolytic Boron Nitride (PBN) material has high purity, chemical […]
