Acetate Formula StructureUranyl Acetate is a moderately water soluble crystalline Uranium source that decomposes to Uranium oxide on heating. It is generally immediately available in most volumes. 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. We also produce Uranium Acetate 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. 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.
