About Tellurates

Tellurate Ion

Tellurates are commonly considered to be compounds containing a tellurium oxyanion in which tellurium carries the oxidation number of +6. Compounds containing either the metatellurate ion, TeO42-, or the orthotellurate ion, TeO66-, would fall under this definition . However, current IUPAC naming conventions dictate that compounds containing what was conventionally known as the tellurite ion, TeO32-, be named as tellurate (IV) compounds, while other tellurates are labeled tellurate (VI) compounds. Furthering confusion, a number of other tellurate oxyanions exist, including pentoxotellurate, TeO54-, and ditellurate, Te2O108-. Additionally, a number compounds that do not even include tellurium oxyanions still have "tellurate" in their names, as in the case of octafluoridotellurate, TeF82-.

Metatellurates are analogous to the sulfate and selenite ions, and share similar chemistry.

American Elements manufactures multiple forms of tellurate compounds including solutions, nanopowders, submicron, and -325 mesh powders, and high surface area materials with particle distribution and particle size controlled and certified. We also produce larger -40 mesh, -100 mesh, -200 mesh range sizes and <0.5 mm, 2 mm, 5 mm and other sizes of shot, granules, lump, flake and pieces. Purities include 99%, 99.9%, 99.99%, 99.999% and 99.9999% (2N, 3N, 4N, 5N and 6N).

American Elements maintains industrial scale production for all its tellurates products and will execute Non-Disclosure or Confidentiality Agreements to protect customer know-how.
