The analysis of chromium, cobalt, iron, nickel, niobium, tantalum, titanium and zinc in cemented tungsten carbides with cobalt as a binder by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry
Inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) was applied as a rapid routine method for the analysis of cemented tungsten carbides. Chromium, cobalt, iron, nickel, niobium,Expand
Sulfur, Selenium, and Tellurium
Sulfur, S 8 , is found uncombined below the earth’s surface and in many minerals. Selenium and tellurium are usually found with sulfur compounds. Chemically, Se and Te are more metallic in characterExpand
Room Temperature Synthesis in Liquid Ammonia of Zinc, Cadmium, and Mercury Sulfides
Reaction of elemental zinc, cadmium, or mercury with sulfur in liquid ammonia at room temperature produces X-ray amorphous metal sulfide MS (M = Zn, Cd, Hg). Thermolysis of this material at 250–300°CExpand
Redox reactions between molybdenum or tungsten hexafluorides and p, f or d block elements in acetonitrile: Comparisons with reactions involving nitrosonium fluorometallates, the effect of fluoride ligand transfer and redox inhibition due to surface oxide
Abstract The outcome of reactions between antimony, bismuth, lanthanum, neodymium, europium, thulium, gold or nickel and the one-electron oxidizing agents, molybdenum hexa-fluoride, tungstenExpand
Alkali Metals: Inorganic Chemistry
This article is updated to cover the literature in the area of inorganic chemistry of alkali metals since 1993. The advancement in instrumentation and spectroscopic techniques in the past decade hasExpand
Structure and reactivity of copper-zinc-cadmium chromite catalysts
Abstract Different mixed oxides containing Cu, Zn, Cd and Cr were obtained by heating hydroxycarbonate precursors at various temperatures and in different atmospheres, and characterized by usingExpand
Synthesis and coordination chemistry of noble metal porphyrins
The noble metals ruthenium, osmium, rhodium, iridium, palladium, platinum, silver, and gold form a variety of complexes M(P) LL′ with tetrapyrrole ligands which are studied in many laboratoriesExpand
Less Common Nonferrous Metals
The alkali metals are represented by the six chemical elements of the group IA(1) of Mendeleev’s periodic chart. These six elements are, in increasing atomic number: lithium (Li), sodium (Na),Expand
Structural chemical states of dopant atoms of platinum and gold in glass-like arsenic selenides
Dopant atoms of platinum do not change the parameters of electric conductivity and optical band gap width of glass-like arsenic selenides, they are stabilized as ions Pt2+ and Pt4+ with differentExpand
High surface area Pd, Pt and Ni ion-exchanged Zr, Ti and Sn(IV) phosphates and their application to selective heterogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of alkenes
Abstract Amorphous acidic metal(IV) phosphates of zirconium, titanium and tin have been prepared and hydrogen-exchanged for bivalent Pd, Pt and Ni. These bivalent metals were returned to the zeroExpand
