About Osmium(III) Chloride

High purity Osmium(III) Chloride Chloride IonOsmium(III) Chloride (Osmium Trichloride) is an excellent water soluble crystalline Osmium source for uses compatible with chlorides. Chloride compounds can conduct electricity when fused or dissolved in water. Chloride materials can be decomposed by electrolysis to chlorine gas and the metal. They are formed through various chlorination processes whereby at least one chlorine anion (Cl-) is covalently bonded to the relevant metal or cation. Ultra high purity and proprietary formulations can be prepared. The chloride ion controls fluid equilibrium and pH levels in metabolic systems. They can form either inorganic or organic compounds. Osmium(III) Chloride is generally immediately available in most volumes. Ultra high purity, high purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. We also produce Osmium Chloride Solution. 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, as is additional research, technical and safety (MSDS) data. Please contact us above for information on specifications, lead time and pricing.

Related Elements

Chlorine

Chlorine is a Block P, Group 17, Period 3 element. Its electron configuration is [Ne]3s23p5. The chlorine atom has a covalent radius of 102±4 pm and its Van der Waals radius is 175 pm. Chlorine ModelIn its elemental form, chlorine is a yellow-green gas. Chlorine is the second lightest halogen after fluorine. It has the third highest electronegativity and the highest electron affinity of all elements, making it a strong oxidizing agent. It is rarely found by itself in nature. Chlorine was discovered and first isolated by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in 1774. It was first recognized as an element by Humphry Davy in 1808.

Osmium

See more Osmium products. Osmium (atomic symbol: Os, atomic number: 76) is a Block D, Group 8, Period 6 element with an atomic weight of 190.23. Osmium Bohr ModelThe number of electrons in each of osmium's shells is [2, 8, 18, 32, 14, 2] and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d6 6s2. The osmium atom has a radius of 135 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 216 pm. Osmium was discovered and first isolated by Smithson Tennant in 1803. Elemental OsmiumIn its elemental form, osmium has a silvery blue cast apperance. Osmium has the highest melting point and the lowest vapor pressure of any of the platinum group of metals it is also the densest naturally ocurring element. Osmium is the least abundant stable element in the earth's crust. It is found in the alloys osmiridium and iridiosmium and as a free element. The origin of the name Osmium comes from the Greek word osme, meaning a smell or odor.
