SECTION 11. TOXICOLOGICAL INFORMATION

CARCINOGENIC EFFECTS: No components of this product present at levels greater than or equal to 0.1% is identified a carcinogen.
MUTAGENIC EFFECTS: Not available
TETRATOGENIC EFFECTS: Not available
RTECS: No data
ACUTE AND CHRONIC TOXICITY: Dysprosium Compounds: Soluble dysprosium salts, such as dysprosium chloride and dysprosium
nitrate, are mildly toxic when ingested. The insoluble salts, however, are non-toxic. Based on the toxicity of dysprosium chloride to
mice, it is estimated that the ingestion of 500 gm. or more could be fatal to a human. Boron Compounds: Only a few human studies
have been conducted to assess health effects associated with exposure to boron compounds. The available data show that exposure
is associated with short-term irritant effects on the upper respiratory tract, nasopharynx, and eye. These effects, however, appear to be
short-term and reversible. The sole long-term (7-year) follow-up study failed to identify any long-term health effects. No studies have
been identified that assess reproductive outcomes. From 782 cases of boric acid ingestion, all except two cases were acute ingestions.
88.3% were asymptomatic. Among the remaining 11.7%, frequent symptoms included vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. Among
the children less than 6 years of age, 21 ingested more than the estimated lethal dose of 15 gm all without severe manifestations of
toxicity or life-threating symptoms. In this series only minimal toxicity was seen at serum levels or less than or equal to 640 mg/ml.
To the best of our knowledge the toxicological effects of this compound have not been fully investigated.

About Dysprosium Boride DyB6

Boride IonDysprosium Hexaboride (DyB6) is generally immediately available in most volumes. Borides are hard, high-melting materials with metal-like conductivity. They are stable to nonoxidizing acids but break down in strong oxidizing agents and strong alkalis. Borides are used in semiconductors, superconductors, diamagnetic, paramagnetic, ferromagnetic, anti-ferromagnetic, turbine blades, and rocket nozzles. Borides have recently been discovered to be superconductive and ultra-incompressible. American Elements produces to many standard grades when applicable, including Mil Spec (military grade); ACS, Reagent and Technical Grade; Food, Agricultural and Pharmaceutical Grade; Optical Grade, USP and EP/BP (European Pharmacopoeia/British Pharmacopoeia) and follows applicable ASTM testing standards. Typical and custom packaging is available. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS) information is available as is a Reference Calculator for converting relevant units of measurement.

The number of electrons in each of boron's shells is 2, 3 and its electron configuration is [He] 2s2 2p1. The boron atom has a radius of 90 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 192 pm. Boron was discovered by Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac and Louis Jacques Thénard in 1808. It was first isolated by Humphry Davy, also in 1808. Boron is classified as a metalloid is not found naturally on earth. Elemental BoronAlong with carbon and nitrogen, boron is one of the few elements in the periodic table known to form stable compounds featuring triple bonds. Boron has an energy band gap of 1.50 to 1.56 eV, which is higher than that of either silicon or germanium. Boron is found in borates, borax, boric acid, colemanite, kernite, and ulexite.The name Boron originates from a combination of carbon and the Arabic word buraqu meaning borax.

Dysprosium Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of dysprosium's shells is [2, 8, 18, 28, 8, 2] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f10 6s2. The dysprosium atom has an atomic radius of 178 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 229 pm. Dysprosium was first discovered by Paul Emile Lecoq de Boisbaudran in 1886.In its elemental form, dysprosium has a silvery-white appearance. Elemental Dysprosium PictureIt is a member of the lanthanide or rare earth series of elements and, along with holmium, has the highest magnetic strength of all other elements on the periodic table, especially at low temperatures. Dysprosium is found in various minerals including bastnäsite, blomstrandine, euxenite, fergusonite, gadolinite, monazite, polycrase and xenotime. It is not found in nature as a free element. The element name originates from the Greek word dysprositos, meaning hard to get at.
