Elements

Wanted Dead or Alive

Bromine

Description

Bromine comes from the Greek word " brômos" meaning stench or stink. Bromine is important only for its use in replacing chlorine. It is a rare element because it is a liquid at room temperature. Bromine is also highly poisonous!

Compounds

  • AgBr - Silver bromide
  • AlBr3 - Aluminum tribromide
  • AmBr3 - Americium bromide
  • AuBr3'xH2O - Gold bromide

Melting and Boiling Point

  • -7.2 C or 265.95 K is bromine's melting point
  • 58.78 C or 331.93 K is bromine's boiling pointS

Neodymium

Neodymium

Neodymium is an element that hates to be an liquid or gas. Reason being is the melting or boiling point which are 1 020 C and 3 074 C. Neodymium is used in many electronics because of its magnetic power.

Compounds

  • NdBr3 - Neodymium bromide
  • NdBr3'xH20 - Neodymium bromide hydrate
  • Nd(BrO3)3'9H2O - Neodymium bromate nonahydrate
  • F3Nd - Neodymium fluoride
  • NNd - Neodymium nitride
  • NdB6 - Neodymium boride

Dysprosium

Dysprosium

Dysprosium was discovered in 1886 by Pauk Emile Lecoq de Boisbaudran. This element was not isolated as a pure until the 1950s because of the ion exchange techniques. With a melting point of 1680 K and a boiling point of 2840 K this element loves to stay a solid. This element is used for high thermal neutron absorption cross-section when making nuclear rods for reactors.

High Thermal Neutron Absorption

TNA (thermal neutron absorption) happens when a atomic nucleus and one or more neutrons collide to merge to a heavier nucleus. They can collide because neutrons have no electric charge they enter a nucleus more easily than a proton.

Compounds

  • DyBr3 - Dysprosium Bromide
  • DyCl3 - Dysprosium Chloride
  • DyF3 - Dysprosium Fluoride
  • Dyl2 - Dysprosium Fluoride
  • DyN - Dysprosium Nitride
  • DySb - Dysprosium Antimonide
  • C6H17DyO10 - Dysprosium Acetate Tetrahydrate
  • Dy(NO3)3.5H20 - Dysprosium Nitrate Pentahydrate

Palladium

Palladium

Palladium is a silver and white solid. This was discovered by William Wollaston in 1803. He gave it the name Palladium originating from the Greek god "Palla" and an asteroid. Palladium can be found in jewelry and medical instruments.

compounds

  • PdBr2 - Palladium Bromide
  • Cl2Pd - Palladium chloride
  • F2Pd - Palladium Fluoride
  • OPd - Palladium Oxide
  • I2Pd - Palladium Iodide
  • PdS - Palladium Sulfide
  • [Pd(NH3)4](PdCl4) - Tetraamminepalladium Tetrachloropalladate
  • Pd(NH3)4(NO3)2 - Tetraamminepalladium Nitrate
  • C8H9OPdBr'(C6H5)3P - Bromo[(2-(hydroxy-kO)methyl)phenylmethyl-kC](triphenylphosphine)palladium

Copper Sulfate

Copper Sulfate

Copper Sulfate also known as Cupric Sulfate is found mainly in soil and is highly soluble in water. Copper is found also as a salt and is used as an emetic in its liquid form.
