Comprehensive data on the chemical element Thallium is provided on this page; including scores of properties, element names in many languages, most known nuclides of Thallium. Thallium does not exist in free elemental form in nature. By deliberately introducing impurities like boron or phosphorus one can subtly change the electrical behaviour of the element. Elements are organised into blocks by the orbital type in which the outer electrons are found. Melting point It is defined as being the charge that an atom would have if all bonds were ionic. This is stable, but thulium 170 with a half life of 128 days, produced by bombarding thulium in a nuclear reactor, has proved a good portable source of x-rays. The only natural isotope of thulium, usually found as an oxide is thulium 169. The Chemical Abstracts Service registry number is a unique identifier of a particular chemical, designed to prevent confusion arising from different languages and naming systems. That was Science Writer Brian Clegg with the chemistry of Thulium. Like lead, thallium is a soft, low-melting element of low tensile strength.

Specific heat capacity is the amount of energy needed to change the temperature of a kilogram of a substance by 1 K. A measure of the stiffness of a substance. Welcome to "A Visual Interpretation of The Table of Elements", the most striking version of the periodic table on the web. Thulium melting point is 1545 O C and boiling point is 1950 O C. I propose the name of thullium derived from Thule, the ancient name of Scandinavia.' He extracted thulium from it in 1879. Thulium is not toxic, although it has no known biological function. Thulium atoms have 69 electrons and the shell structure is 2.8.18.31.8.2. The arrangements of electrons above the last (closed shell) noble gas. Originally this was the classical name for a mysterious land, six day's sail to the north of Britain, thought by the Greek historian Polybius to be the most northerly part of the world. In the case of Thulium the group number is lanthanides. In 1843, erbium and terbium were extracted from yttrium, and then, in 1874, Cleve looked more closely at erbium and realised that it must contain yet other elements because he observed that its atomic weight varied slightly depending on the source from which it came. In medieval times, when maps were bedecked with strange and exotic unknowns, where the corners might be inscribed 'Here be monsters', the most distant place that could be conceived, lying beyond the borders of the known world, was labelled 'Ultima Thule'. The metal is obtained by reducing the anhydrous fluoride with calcium, or reducing the oxide with lanthanum. This trivalent ion most commonly forms green compounds. When thulium was named by Per Teodor Cleve in 1879, it was down to a slight misunderstanding of the meaning of thule. It is given by the ratio of the shear stress to the shear strain. These values were determined using several different methods. This Site has been carefully prepared for your visit, and we ask you to honour and agree to the following terms and conditions when using this Site.

It is a soft, malleable, ductile, silvery metal that tarnishes in air and reacts with water. A measure of how difficult it is to deform a material. Cleve would eventually discover a total of four elements, and won the Davy Medal from the Royal Society for his work on the rare earth metals, but here he wasn't entirely accurate. We welcome your feedback. Like the other lanthanides, the most common oxidation state is +3, seen in its oxide, halides and other compounds; because it occurs so late in the series, however, the +2 oxidation state is also stabilized by the nearly full 4f shell that results. Density is the mass of a substance that would fill 1 cm. Thulium-170 is used for cancer treatment via brachytherapy (radiotherapy). This week's element takes us into the unknown, entering dark, mysterious lands. -0.2316. Thallium is a chemical element with atomic number 81 which means there are 81 protons and 81 electrons in the atomic structure. By mass, oxygen is the third-most abundant element in the universe, after hydrogen and helium. The discoveries of the many rare earth elements (aka lanthanoid) began with yttrium in 1794. In 1911, the American chemist Theodore William Richards performed 15,000 recrystallisations of thulium bromate in order to obtain an absolutley pure sample of the element and so determine exactly its atomic weight. Thulium isn't exactly mass market, but about 50 tonnes of it is mined each year, broadly in three bands of ores - Australia and China, the US and Brazil, and India and Sri Lanka. In such cases we would ask you to sign a Visual Elements licence agreement, tailored to the specific use you propose. Values are given for typical oxidation number and coordination. It is defined as the equilibrium pressure exerted by the gas produced above a substance in a closed system. A measure of the propensity of a substance to evaporate. Less common, but still valuable, is thulium's role in doping a special type of garnet, yttrium aluminium garnet or YAG. This is calculated by combining the scores for crustal abundance, reserve distribution, production concentration, substitutability, recycling rate and political stability scores. Chemists William Crookes and Claude-Auguste Lamy discovered thallium independently in 1861, in residues of sulfuric acid production. Please enable JavaScript to access the full features of the site. It is extracted by ion exchange and solvent extraction. The atomic number of each element increases by one, reading from left to right. And that's not an effort that would be put in for nothing. The crystal is used as the active medium in a laser with a wavelength of around 2,000 nanometres, which is ideal for laser surgery, so once again thulium comes to our medical aid. The percentage of the world reserves located in the country with the largest reserves. Even thulium’s location on the periodic table, swept off into the lower-right corner, suggests that this element just isn’t terribly important.
