Rare: The High-Stakes Race to Satisfy Our Need for the Scarcest Metals on Earth

 (Rare: The High-Stakes Race to Satisfy Our Need for the Scarcest Metals on)
How will your life change when the supply of tantalum dries up? You may have never heard of this unusual metal, but without it smartphones would be instantly less omniscient, video game systems would falter, and laptops fail.  Tantalum is not alone.  Rhodium. Osmium. Niobium. Such refugees from the bottom of the periodic table are key components of many consumer products like cell phones, hybrid car batteries, and flat screen televisions, as well as sophisticated medical devices and even weapon systems. Their versatile properties have led manufacturers to seek these elements out to maximize longevity, value, and efficiency, but not without a human price. In addition to explaining the chemistry behind rare earth metals, Rare delves into the economic and geopolitical issues surrounding these “conflict minerals,” blending tales of financial and political struggles with glimpses into the human lives that are shattered by the race to secure them. In the past decade, the Congo has been ravaged by tribal wars fought to obtain control of tantalum, tungsten, and tin supplies in the region, with over five million people dying at the crossroads of supply and demand. A burgeoning black market in China, Africa, and India is propped up by school-age children retrieving and purifying the...

The Elements of Power: Gadgets, Guns, and the Struggle for a Sustainable Future in the Rare Metal Age

 (The Elements of Power: Gadgets, Guns, and the Struggle for a Sustainable Future in the Rare Metal)
Our future hinges on a set of elements that few of us have even heard of. In this surprising and revealing book, David S. Abraham unveils what rare metals are and why our electronic gadgets, the most powerful armies, and indeed the fate of our planet depend on them. These metals have become the building blocks of modern society; their properties are now essential for nearly all our electronic, military, and “green” technologies. But their growing use is not without environmental, economic, and geopolitical consequences. Abraham traces these elements’ hidden paths from mines to our living rooms, from the remote hills of China to the frozen Gulf of Finland, providing vivid accounts of those who produce, trade, and rely on rare metals. He argues that these materials are increasingly playing a significant role in global affairs, conferring strength to countries and companies that can ensure sustainable supplies. Just as oil, iron, and bronze revolutionized previous eras, so too will these metals. The challenges this book reveals, and the plans it proposes, make it essential reading for our rare metal age.

Powerful Neodymium Bar Magnets, Rare-Earth Metal Neodymium Magnet - 60 x 10 x 3 mm, Pack of 24

 (Powerful Neodymium Bar Magnets, Rare-Earth Metal Neodymium Magnet - 60 x 10 x 3 mm, Pack of)
LOVIMAG Neodymium Bar Magnets - 60mm x 10mm x 3mm (24 PCS) Rare earth magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnet currently made. They are amazingly powerful for their size and have innumerable uses.They are magnetized through the thickness. They are composed of neodymium iron boron magnetic material and are plated in nickel-copper-nickel for a shiny corrosion resistant finish. Maximum working temperature is 176 F (80 C). These Neodymium thin rectangular magnets provide an astonishing pull of 12lb and every magnet has a triple coating of nickel, copper and nickel again to prevent against corrosion. Our Neodymium magnets are commonly used in creative applications such as model making, theatre design, furniture making, exhibition displays and packaging. They also have many uses in engineering and manufacturing where small size and maximum strength are required. What's more, because of their resistance to demagnetisation they are ideal for creating a shock-absorbing or damping effect when used to repel other magnets. Warning 1. Keep away from pacemakers. 2. Powerful magnets can hurt your fingers. 3. Not for children, parental supervision required. 4. All magnets may chip and shatter, but if used correctly can last a lifetime. 5. If damaged please dispose of completely. Sh...

Luciteria Science Europium Metal 99.99% Pure 1 Gram Rare Earth for Element Collection

 (Luciteria Science Europium Metal 99.99% Pure 1 Gram Rare Earth for Element)
This is both a pricey and delicate element. Although it is nowhere near as reactive as the alkali metals, europium is nevertheless the most easily tarnished of the lanthanides and will rust readily in air forming greenish oxides. On top of its chemical reactivity europium is also soft and extremely rare making its demand as a pure metal essentially nil. The vast majority of rare earth metals dome from chief ore monazite, a type of sand that is reasonably abundant. However, even here Eu got the short end of the stick as typical yields top out at about 0.05% by ore weight compared to almost 50% lanthanum and cerium! This means that after the arduous process of putting all that sand through acid baths and centrifuges for each ton of lanthanum or cerium hauled away in a box car the tech hands over an envelope with a pitiful couple of ounces of europium. It's not hard to see why all these factors taken together leave europium as one of the most exotic metals in existence. After adding a little europium to your collection the rest of the series will seem like child's play! Ships in mineral oil to control oxidation.

The Rare Earth Elements: An Introduction (SpringerBriefs in Earth Sciences)

 (The Rare Earth Elements: An Introduction (SpringerBriefs in Earth)
This book deals with the rare earth elements (REE), which are a series of 17 transition metals: scandium, yttrium and the lanthanide series of elements (lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, promethium, samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium and lutetium).They are relatively unknown to the wider public, despite their numerous applications and their critical role in many high-tech applications, such as high-temperature superconductors, phosphors (for energy-saving lamps, flat-screen monitors and flat-screen televisions), rechargeable batteries (household and automotive), very strong permanent magnets (used for instance in wind turbines and hard-disk drives), or even in a medical MRI application.This book describes the history of their discovery, the major REE ore minerals and the major ore deposits that are presently being exploited (or are planned to be exploited in the very near future), the physical and chemical properties of REEs, the mineral processing of REE concentrates and their extractive metallurgy, the applications of these elements, their economic aspects and the influential economical role of China, and finally the recycling of the REE, which is an emerging field.
