About Uranium Oxide

Oxide IonUranium Oxide is a highly insoluble thermally stable Uranium source suitable for glass, optic and ceramic applications. 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 and oxygen generation systems. Rare Earth oxide compounds are basic anhydrides and can therefore react with acids and with strong reducing agents in redox reactions. They are compounds containing at least one oxygen anion and one metallic cation. They are typically High Purity (99.999%) Uranium Oxide (UO) Powderinsoluble 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 inaerospace and electrochemical applications such as fuel cells in which they exhibit ionic conductivity. Uranium Oxide is also available in pellets, pieces, sputtering targets, tablets, and nanopowder (from American Elements' nanoscale production facilities). Uranium Oxide is generally immediately available in most volumes. High purity, submicron and nanopowder forms may be considered. 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 Uranium's shells is 2, 8, 18, 32, 21, 9, 2 and its electronic configuration is [Rn] 5f3 6d1 7s2. In its elemental form uranium's CAS number is 7440-61-1. The uranium atom has a radius of 138.5.pm and its Van der Waals radius is 186.pm. Uranium is harmful both through its radioactivity and chemical toxicity. Uranium in its depleted and unenriched forms has numerous commercial applications due to its great density and its bright yellow-green color in glass and ceramics. Uranium Bohr ModelIts great density has found military applications in armor piercing armaments and in protective shielding. It is added to ceramic frits, glazes and to color bars for glass production because of its bright yellow shade. Uranyl Nitrate and Uranyl Acetate are used in medical and analytical laboratories. Uranium was discovered by Martin Heinrich Klaproth. The name Uranium originates from the planet Uranus. Uranium occurs naturally in soil, rock and water and is commercially extracted from uranium-bearing minerals.
