W ithin a short time after the discovery of columbium by Mr. Hatchett in 1801, a metallic substance was also discovered in Sweden by M. EKEBERG, differing from every metal then known to him ; and accordingly he described the properties by which it might be distinguished from those which it most nearly resembled. But although the Swedish metal has retained the name of Tantalum given to it by M .Ekeberg, a reasonable degree of doubt has been entertained by chemists, whether these two authors had… Expand
Four brilliant students of Henri Sainte-Claire Deville 2. Louis Joseph Troost
Louis Joseph Troost (1825-1911) carried on a large number of researches, alone or with Deville, Haute feuille, and other colleagues, on the isolation of lithium, determination of its atomic mass, andExpand
Charles Hatchett: The discoverer of niobium
To Charles Hatchett (1765---1847), a self-educated scientist and first class analytical chemist, we owe the discovery of niobium, the analysis of a series of important minerals and animal substancesExpand
Separation of tantalum and niobium with solvent extraction
Separation of tantalum and niobium with solvent extraction. Niobium (Nb) and tantalum (Ta) have similar chemical and physical properties, which is why they are difficult to separate. They are foundExpand
Tantalum in the environment
Abstract In our modern economy, tantalum has become a ‘technology-critical element’ which is increasingly used in new technologies. This has led to a need to evaluate potential environmental impacts,Expand
World War II, tantalum, and the evolution of modern cranioplasty technique.
The experiences of wartime neurosurgeons with tantalum cranioplasty played a pivotal role in the evolution of modern crANIoplasty techniques and ultimately led to a heightened understanding of the necessary attributes of an ideal synthetic cranioprostheses material. Expand
Tântalo: Breve histórico, propriedades e aplicações
ABSTRACT (Tantalum: Brief history, properties and applications) Tantalum, a malleable metal, ductile, of high melting point, is mainly used to obtain special alloys, capacitors, and plates for skullExpand
Fabrication of ultrathin films of Ta2O5 by a sol-gel method
Tantalum oxide (Ta2O5) is widely known for its high chemical, thermal and hydrothermal stability. In this study, a sol–gel method has been developed to produce homogenous, i.e., defect and pin-holeExpand

Sustainability evaluation of essential critical raw materials: cobalt, niobium, tungsten and rare earth elements
The criticality of raw materials has become an important issue in recent years. As the supply of certain raw materials is essential for technologically-advanced economies, the European Commission andExpand
Development and applications of porous tantalum trabecular metal-enhanced titanium dental implants.
The biological aspects of porous tantalum-enhanced titanium dental implants, in particular the effects of anatomical consideration and oral environment to implant designs, are reviewed. Expand
