About Mercury Phenyl Acetate

Mercury Phenyl Acetate is generally immediately available in most volumes. High purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. All metallic acetates are inorganic salts containing a metal cation and the acetate anion, a univalent (-1 charge) polyatomic ion composed of two carbon atoms ionically bound to three hydrogen and two oxygen atoms (Symbol: CH3COO) for a total formula weight of 59.05. Acetates are excellent precursors for production of ultra high purity compounds, catalysts, and nanoscale materials. 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.

Mercury Bohr ModelSee more Mercury products. Mercury (atomic symbol: Hg, atomic number: 80) is a Block D, Group 12, Period 6 element with an atomic weight of 200.59. The number of electrons in each of mercury's shells is 2, 8, 18,32, 18, 2 and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d10 6s2. The mercury atom has a radius of 151 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 209 pm. It is named after the planet Mercury and often referred to as "quicksilver" due to its appearance as a silvery liquid. Mercury has low melting and boiling points. It is a poor conductor of heat, but a fair conductor of electricity. Mercury is found both as a free element and in cinnabar, corderoite, and livingstonite ores.
