American Elements specializes in producing high purity Rhenium Chunk using crystallization, solid state and other ultra high purification processes such as sublimation. Standard Chunk pieces are amorphous uniform pieces ranging in size from 5-15 mm. American Elements specializes in producing custom compositions for commercial and research applications and for new proprietary technologies. American Elements also casts any of the rare earth metals and most other advanced materials into granules, rod, bar or plate form, as well as other machined shapes and through other processes such as nanoparticles (See also application discussion at Nanotechnology Information and at Quantum Dots) and in the form of solutions and organometallics. See research below.We also produce Rhenium as rod, pellets, powder, pieces, disc, ingot, wire, and in compound forms, such as oxide. Other shapes are available by request.
Rhenium (atomic symbol: Re, atomic number: 75) is a Block D, Group 7, Period 6 element with an atomic weight of 186.207. The number of electrons in each of rhenium's shells is 2, 8, 18, 32, 13, 2 and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d5 6s2. The rhenium atom has a radius of 137 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 217 pm. Rhenium was discovered and first isolated by Masataka Ogawa in 1908. In its elemental form, rhenium has a silvery-white appearance. Rhenium is the fourth densest element exceeded only by platinum, iridium, and osmium. Rhenium's high melting point is exceeded only by those of tungsten and carbon. Rhenium is found in small amounts in gadolinite and molybdenite. It is usually extracted from the flue dusts of molybdenum smelters. The name Rhenium originates from the Latin word 'Rhenus' meaning "Rhine" after the place of discovery.
