  • New method developed for producing some metals

    The MIT researchers were trying to develop a new battery, but it didn’t work out that way. Instead, thanks to an unexpected finding in their lab tests, what they discovered was a whole new way of producing the metal antimony — and potentially a new way of smelting other metals, as well. The discover more

  • New material could advance superconductivity

    Scientists have looked for different ways to force hydrogen into a metallic state for decades. A metallic state of hydrogen is a holy grail for materials science because it could be used for superconductors, materials that have no resistance to the flow of electrons, which increases electricity tran more

  • Unconventional quasiparticles predicted in conventional crystals

    An international team of researchers has predicted the existence of several previously unknown types of quantum particles in materials. The particles — which belong to the class of particles known as fermions — can be distinguished by several intrinsic properties, such as their responses to applied more

Alkali metal roulette – reacting sodium and potassium with acid

Students generally make three requests after seeing the reaction of alkali metals with water: ‘Put in a bigger piece!’, ‘Can we see what happens with caesium?’ and ‘What happens if you do it in acid?’. Safety prohibits the use of bigger pieces, while cost and practical considerations prohibit th ... more

Group 2 Elements

The second of a series of infographics on the groups of the periodic table, here some general properties of the group 2 elements are examined. As stated previously, these are primarily aimed at secondary school students, hence the relative simplicity and generality of the information presented. more

Group 1 Elements

I wanted to display all the key points about each group of elements, in a way that was both clear and engaging for the pupils – as a consequence, the information presented is relatively basic, so that it’s accessible for as many of the year groups as possible. I also tried to include some informatio more

The Chemistry of Fireworks

The colours in fireworks stem from a wide variety of metal compounds – particularly metal salts. ‘Salt’ as a word conjures up images of the normal table salt you probably use every day; whilst this is one type of salt (sodium chloride), in chemistry ‘salt’ refers to any compound that contains metal more

Thermal Analysis of Thermosets

Thermosets are used for components that must be rigid, insoluble and of high mechanical strength and temperature stability. Production and processing are cheaper compared with metals. The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA are ideal for characterizing such materials. Th

Metal

Metal . In chemistry, a metal (Greek : Metallon) is an element that readily loses electrons to form positive ion s (cations) and has metallic bond s between metal atoms. Metals form ionic bonds with non-metals. They are sometimes described ... more
