Additional Information
RTECS: Not available
To the best of our knowledge, the chemical, physical, and toxicological properties have not been thoroughly
investigated., Overdose of iron compounds may have a corrosive effect on the gastrointestinal mucosa and be followed
by necrosis, perforation, and stricture formation. Several hours may elapse before symptoms that can include
epigastric pain, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and hematemesis occur. After apparent recovery a person may experience
metabolic acidosis, convulsions, and coma hours or days later. Further complications may develop leading to acute
liver necrosis that can result in death due to hepatic coma., Long term inhalation exposure to iron (oxide fume or dust)
can cause siderosis. Siderosis is considered to be a benign pneumoconiosis and does not normally cause significant
physiologic impairment. Siderosis can be observed on x-rays with the lungs having a mottled appearance., Symptoms
of systemic copper poisoning may include: capillary damage, headache, cold sweat, weak pulse, and kidney and liver
damage, central nervous system excitation followed by depression, jaundice, convulsions, paralysis, and coma. Death
may occur from shock or renal failure. Chronic copper poisoning is typified by hepatic cirrhosis, brain damage and
demyelination, kidney defects, and copper deposition in the cornea as exemplified by humans with Wilson's disease. It
has also been reported that copper poisoning has lead to hemolytic anemia and accelerates arteriosclerosis.

See more Copper products. Copper Bohr Model Copper (atomic symbol: Cu, atomic number: 29) is a Block D, Group 11, Period 4 element with an atomic weight of 63.546. The number of electrons in each of copper's shells is 2, 8, 18, 1 and its electron configuration is [Ar] 3d10 4s1. The copper atom has a radius of 128 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 186 pm. Copper was first discovered by Early Man prior to 9000 BC. In its elemental form, copper has a red-orange metallic luster appearance. Of all pure metals, only silver Elemental Copperhas a higher electrical conductivity.The origin of the word copper comes from the Latin word 'cuprium' which translates as "metal of Cyprus." Cyprus, a Mediterranean island, was known as an ancient source of mined copper.

See more Iron products. Iron (atomic symbol: Fe, atomic number: 26) is a Block D, Group 8, Period 4 element with an atomic weight of 55.845. The number of electrons in each of Iron's shells is 2, 8, 14, 2 and its electron configuration is [Ar] 3d6 4s2. Iron Bohr ModelThe iron atom has a radius of 126 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 194 pm. Iron was discovered by humans before 5000 BC. In its elemental form, iron has a lustrous grayish metallic appearance. Iron is the fourth most common element in the Earth's crust and the most common element by mass forming the earth as a whole. Iron is rarely found as a free element, since it tends to oxidize easily; it is usually found in minerals such as magnetite, hematite, goethite, limonite, or siderite.Elemental Iron Though pure iron is typically soft, the addition of carbon creates the alloy known as steel, which is significantly stronger.
