  • The most expensive metal in the world

    Do you think the most expensive metal is gold? No! On earth there are more valuable metals. But we need to divide the value of metals that occur in nature, and metals - isotopes, which are obtained in special laboratories. Let’s look at natural metals first.

  • Interesting facts about metals

    Metals have been used by people since ancient times. All the time the process of obtaining them was improved, useful alloys of various metals appeared. Let’s look at interesting facts about metals.

  • Chemical Safety

    People use chemicals every day for a wide array of purposes, which can include work and house hold duties. Many of us fail to realize that we are actually handling potentially deadly chemicals when we simply clean the bathroom or wash the car. This brings to mind the reason why chemical safety is...

Valence Electrons

Outermost electrons of atoms, usually those involved in bonding.

Single Bond

Covalent bond resulting from the sharing of two electrons (one pair) between two atoms.

Sigma Orbital

Molecular orbital resulting from head-on overlap of two atomic orbitals.

Alloying

Mixing of metal with other substances (usually other metals) to modify its properties.

Gangue

Sand, rock, and other impurities surrounding the mineral of interest in an ore.

Covalent Bond

Chemical bond formed by the sharing of one or more electron pairs between two atoms.

Continuous Spectrum

Spectrum that contains all wave-lengths in a specified region of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Law of Combining Volumes (Gay-Lussac's Law)

At constant temperature and pressure, the volumes of reacting gases (and any gaseous products) can be expressed as ratios of small whole numbers.

 

Dynamic Equilibrium

An equilibrium in which processes occur continuously, with no net change. When two (or more) processes occur at the same rate so that no net change occurs.

Formula

Combination of symbols that indicates the chemical composition of a substance.
