About Rhenium(VII) Oxide

Oxide IonRhenium(VII) Oxide is a highly insoluble thermally stable Rhenium source suitable for glass, optic and ceramic applications. Rhenium oxide is a chemical compound formed when rhenium oxidizes in air. Oxide compounds are not conductive to electricity. However, certain perovskite structured oxides are electronically conductive finding application in the cathode of solid oxide fuel cells High Purity (99.999%) Rhenium Oxide (ReO2) Powderand oxygen generation systems. They are compounds containing at least one oxygen anion and one metallic cation. They are typically insoluble in aqueous solutions (water) and extremely stable making them useful in ceramic structures as simple as producing clay bowls to advanced electronics and in light weight structural components in aerospace and electrochemical applications such as fuel cells in which they exhibit ionic conductivity. Metal oxide compounds are basic anhydrides and can therefore react with acids and with strong reducing agents in redox reactions. Rhenium Oxide is also available in pellets, pieces, sputtering targets, tablets, and nanopowder (from American Elements' nanoscale production facilities). Rhenium Oxide is generally immediately available in most volumes. Ultra high purity, high purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. Additional technical, research and safety (MSDS)information is available.

See more Rhenium products. Rhenium (atomic symbol: Re, atomic number: 75) is a Block D, Group 7, Period 6 element with an atomic weight of 186.207. The number of electrons in each of rhenium's shells is 2, 8, 18, 32, 13, 2 and its electron configuration is [Xe] 4f14 5d5 6s2. Rhenium Bohr ModelThe rhenium atom has a radius of 137 pm and a Van der Waals radius of 217 pm. Rhenium was discovered and first isolated by Masataka Ogawa in 1908. In its elemental form, rhenium has a silvery-white appearance. Rhenium is the fourth densest element exceeded only by platinum, iridium, and osmium. Rhenium's high melting point is exceeded only by those of tungsten and carbon.Elemental Rhenium Rhenium is found in small amounts in gadolinite and molybdenite. It is usually extracted from the flue dusts of molybdenum smelters. The name Rhenium originates from the Latin word 'Rhenus' meaning "Rhine" after the place of discovery.
