About Tellurites

Telluride Ion

Tellurites, are compounds which contain the tellurium oxyanion, TeO32−. Tellurites are generally quite stable, but may be reduced to elemental tellurium via electrolysis or treatment with a strong reducing agent. Sodium tellurite is a component of anode slimes produced in the refining of copper, and is a major source of tellurium.

American Elements manufactures multiple forms of tellurite 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 tellurite products and will execute Non-Disclosure or Confidentiality Agreements to protect customer know-how.
