    found: Wikipedia, Aug. 12, Thorium dioxide (Thorium dioxide (ThO₂), also called thorium(IV) oxide is a white, crystalline powder. It was formerly known as thoria or thorina. It is produced mainly as a by-product of lanthanide and uranium production. Thorianite is the name of the mineralogical form of thorium dioxide. Thorium is named after Thor, The Scandinavian God of war. It was discovered by a Swedish Scientist named Jons Jacob Berzelius in the year Physical properties of Thorium. The properties of thorium depend highly on a number of impurities present in the sample. The major impurity is commonly thorium dioxide.

Radiometric dating to determine how old something is – the hour glass analogy []. The radioactive decay of isotopes and use of excited electron energy states have come to dominate how we tell time from the quartz crystals in your wrist watch and computer, to atomic clocks onboard satellites in space. Measuring radioactive isotopes and electron energy states is the major way we tell time in.

      "Thorium dioxide melts at degrees higher temperatures than traditional uranium dioxide, so very high temperatures are required to produce high-quality solid fuel," says a . Thorium Dioxide Toxicity Identification and Uses: CAS Number Thorium Dioxide is a heavy, white, crystalline (sand-like) powder. It is used in: ceramics, -in nuclear fuels, -as a catalyst, -in electrodes for arc welding. Toxicology: Thorium Dioxide emits alpha particles which can be breathed in .

Kheman Rajkomar, Jonathan B. Koea, in Blumgart's Surgery of the Liver, Biliary Tract and Pancreas, 2-Volume Set (Sixth Edition), Chemical Agents. Thorotrast (thorium dioxide) was used as a radiologic contrast agent between and It is an alpha emitter with a biologic half-life of years.

It accumulates in the reticuloendothelial cells in the liver and spleen and increases the. Thorium Dioxide is a radioactive crystalline solid compound used in a broad range of industrial applications.

Thorium dioxide was utilized as a radiographic contrast agent; however, it is no longer considered safe for use in human patients because it was found to be a carcinogen that can cause cholangiocarcinoma.

Thorium also has been widely used in lantern mantles for the brightness it imparts (though alternatives are replacing it), and in welding rods, which burn better with small amounts of added thorium.

Until the s, thorium dioxide was used as a contrast agent (called Thorotrast) in medical radiology. Thorotrast is a suspension containing particles of the radioactive compound thorium dioxide, ThO 2, that was used as a radiocontrast agent in medical radiography in the s and s.

Use in some countries, such as the U.S., continued into the s. Thorium compounds produce excellent images because of thorium's high opacity to X-rays (it has a high cross section for absorption).

Thorium Oxide Powder (ThO2), also called thorium (IV) oxide, is a crystalline solid, often white or yellow in color. Also known as thoria, it is produced mainly as a by-product of lanthanide and uranium production. Thorianite is the name of the mineralogical form of thorium dioxide.

It is moderately rare and crystallizes in an isometric system. Thorium Dioxide is not at a high enough concentration to be reportable under Section No chemicals are reportable under Section Clean Air Act: This material does not contain any hazardous air pollutants.

This material does not contain any Class 1 Ozone depletors. This material does not contain any Class 2 Ozone depletors. We report the structural properties of ultra-small ThO2 and UO2 nanoparticles (NPs), which were synthesized without strong binding surface ligands by employing a covalent organic framework (COF-5) as an inert template.

The resultant NPs were used to observe how structural properties are affected by decreasin Chemical Science HOT Article Collection.

Thorium oxide definition is - a refractory crystalline compund ThO2 obtained usually as a dense white powder by igniting thorium nitrate and used chiefly in incandescent gas mantles, in crucibles and refractories, in silica-free optical glass, and in catalysts —called also thoria.

The metal may be extruded, rolled, forged, swaged, and spun, but drawing is difficult because of thorium’s low tensile and other physical properties such as melting and boiling points are greatly affected by small amounts of certain impurities, such as carbon and thorium dioxide.

Thorium is hard yet malleable and has a high melting point.thoria definition: a white, powdery form of thorium dioxide, ThO, used esp. in gas mantles and in making refractory cruciblesOrigin of thoriaModern Latin from Swedish Thorjord, literally, Thor-earth (so named by Berzelius): see thorium.

Thorium ( Th) is present in significant amounts in the Earth's crust and is an alpha-emitting radionuclide, which decays to radium ( Ra), which is a beta emitter with a half-life of about six years; it emits no significant gamma Ra ultimately decays through multiple radioactive progeny, four others of which decay by beta emission with the associated emission of.
