About Scandium Metal Sc Metal:
Scandium is a chemical element with the element symbol Sc and an atomic number of 21. Is scandium a metal? A silvery metal that tarnishes in air, burns easily and reacts with water. Scandium is mainly used for research purposes. It has, however, great potential because it has almost as low a density as aluminum and a much higher melting point. Elemental is a soft, silvery-white transition metal, often mixed with gadolinium, erbium and other existence, the yield is very small, in the earth's crust content is about 0.0005%. Why is scandium so expensive? Owing to its scarcity and limited production, scandium is one of the most expensive of all the natural elements.
Is scandium harmful to humans? Health effects of scandium: Scandium is most dangerous in the working environment, due to the fact that damps and gasses can be inhaled with air. This can cause lung embolisms, especially during long-term exposure. Scandium can be a threat to the liver when it accumulates in the human body.
Scandium is commonly used to make special glass, light and high-temperature resistant alloys. Scandium is slightly yellowish or pink when oxidized by air, is easily weathered and slowly dissolves in most dilute acids. However, in strong acids, the surface tends to form an impermeable passivation layer, so it does not react with a 1:1 mixture of nitric acid (HNO3) and hydrofluoric acid (HF).

In the metal-insulator-semiconductor silicon photocell and solar cell, scandium is the best barrier metal.
Alloy industrial
Scandium, in its elemental form, has been widely used in the doping of aluminum alloys. As long as a few thousandths of scandium is added to aluminum, a new phase of Al3Sc will be formed, which will have metamorphism on aluminum alloy and make the structure and properties of the alloy change significantly. The addition of 0.2%~0.4% Sc can increase the recrystallization temperature of the alloy by 150~200℃, and the high-temperature strength, structural stability, welding property and corrosion resistance are obviously improved and can avoid the embrittlement phenomenon which is easy to occur in the long-term working at high temperature.
To change the agent
Scandium is also an excellent iron modifier. A small amount of Scandium can significantly improve the strength and hardness of cast iron. In addition, scandium can also be used as an additive in high-temperature tungsten and chromium alloys.
Ceramic materials
The elemental scandium is generally used in alloys, and the oxide of scandium also plays an important role in ceramic materials. Tetragonal zirconia ceramics, such as those that can be used as electrode materials for solid oxide fuel cells, have a very special property in which the conductance of this electrolyte increases with temperature and oxygen concentration in the environment.
The catalytic chemistry
In the chemical industry, scandium is often used as a catalyst, SC2O3 can be used for ethanol or isopropanol dehydration and deoxygenation, acetic acid decomposition, from CO and H2 ethylene and so on. The Pt-Al catalyst containing SC2O3 is used as an important catalyst in the hydrogenation purification and refining process of heavy oil in the petrochemical industry.
Nuclear power industry
Adding a small amount of SC2O3 to UO2 in high-temperature reactor nuclear fuel can avoid lattice transition, volume increase and crack caused by UO2 to U3O8 conversion.
A fuel cell
Similarly, the addition of 2.5%~25% scandium in the nickel base battery will increase the service life.

hafnium hydride is a refractory, face-centered cubic or tetragonal crystal that is formed by reacting hafnium with hydrogen gas. It is typically produced as an intermediate in the process of making hafnium powder from mass hafnium metal.The structure of most transition metal hydrides is CaF2 (Fm-3m space group) where the metal atoms form a face-centered cubic lattice while the hydrogen atoms occupy the tetrahedron centers. The group IVB dihydrides TiH2, ZrH2 and HfH2 display a much more basic face-centered tetragonal (fct) cell structure of the I4/mmm space group and exhibit fascinating superconducting properties6,7,8.Stable phases of HfH2 under pressureA comprehensive investigation of the pressure-induced phase transformations and properties of a unique, high-Tc superconductor, HfH2, under high pressure has been performed using structural searches, first-principle calculations and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The results indicate that a metastable stochiometric HfH9 is formed by the stabilization of a unique, H12 tube-like structure in a HfH3 framework under 200 GPa.Hydrogen-rich hydrides are important materials in search of exotic properties such as high-Tc superconductivity3,4 and the existence of diverse hydrogen chemistries at high pressure is key to these efforts5,6. This study provides a new insight into the chemistry of hydrogen-rich hydrides, which will lead to better understanding of their structural and electronic properties under high pressure.The bonding nature of HfH2 is studied by electron localization function (ELF), difference charge density and Bader charge analyses, which reveal that the ionic bond is formed between Hf and H atoms and that HfH2 is classified as an ionic crystal with the charges transferring from Hf to H atoms. These findings are complemented by the structural studies of I4/mmm, Cmma and P21/m at 100, 200 and 250 GPa, which show that the HfH2 can be characterized as a stable crystalline phase under these conditions.

Modified Tribo-Phosphorylated Phosphoric Acid (modtp) is an additive in lubricants that imparts antifriction, antiwear, and antioxidation properties. It can be used in engine oils, hydraulic oils and greases.Compared with other tribo-polyphosphates, molybdenum dialkyl phosphorodithioate (modtp) complexes have a higher tribological performance at low temperatures and low loads. In addition, it has good oxidation resistance, which can extend the shelf life of lubricants.Four modtp complexes with alkyl chain lengths ranging from C5 to C10 have been synthesized and their antifriction, antiwear and antioxidant properties have been characterized vis-a-vis commercial molybdenum dithiophosphate. The synthesized products exhibit appreciable anti-friction, antiwear and antioxidant performance in mineral oil, base oil and finished engine oil and are comparable to commercial modtp.The tribological behavior of piston ring sliding against grey cast iron cylinder liner under the lubrication of petroleum based engine oil SJ/5W-30 containing molybdenum dithiocarbomate (MoDTC) or molybdenum dithiophosphate (modtp) was studied in reciprocating test rigs at different temperatures. The friction coefficient curve of both compounds exhibited a "V" shape when the test temperature increased from 125degC to 320degC.The tribofilm formed by MoDTC was mainly composed of MoS2 while that formed by modtp was largely composed of FePOSUB 4. The tribofilm of MoDTC was significantly more effective in reducing the friction than that of modtp. The tribofilm of MoDTC had a lower oxidation tendency than that of modtp.

Electrical conductivity is the ability of a material to carry current. Titanium is a poor conductor of electricity as its outermost orbital 4s2 is completely filled leaving electrons in the down orbital 3d2 that are unavailable for carrying current through it.The electrical properties of titanium vary with temperature. When it is heated, its electrical conductivity decreases as electrons are lost from the atom.Nitride is a compound formed by a nitrogen atom and a metal. It is commonly used as a dielectric coating to protect or harden the surfaces of conductive metals such as copper and insulator materials like thermal oxides.Typical applications of nitride include creating a barrier layer between a silicon chip and a metal contact. It is also used as a conductive connection between metal connectors on microelectronic circuit boards.Refractory nitrides, such as TiN, have fascinating superconducting properties. When a thin film of TiN is chilled to absolute zero, it converts into a first-ever superinsulator!It is used to coat the edges of metal parts and tools such as drill bits, milling cutters, and punches. The coating increases lubricity and reduces friction, improving tool life up to 7 times over uncoated tools. It also improves corrosive resistance and minimizes galling between sliding mold components.Tantalum nitride TaN powder can be used as an additive for superhard materials to produce pure tantalum pentachloride, which can be sprayed and improve the electrical stability of transformers, integrated circuits, and diodes. It is a low-cost, high-performance nanomaterial that is suited for spraying and application in various industries.

cobalt chromium molybdenum alloys are used in the medical industry for applications such as orthopedic implants. Their popularity has waned due to their limited hardness and tribological properties, leading to the development of alternative systems.In orthopaedics, cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloys have been widely used in hip replacements and other metal-on-metal prostheses because of their high strength. However, complications such as loosening and tissue necrosis have been reported. These have been attributed to the alloy’s biocompatibility.Alloys of this type are manufactured using a range of processing techniques, including casting and wrought forging. Some are fabricated through spark plasma sintering, which results in an alloy with carbide-free microstructures.The influence of chromium and molybdenum content on the phases present in a cobalt-chromium-molybdenum system is investigated through X-ray diffraction (XRD), nanomechanical, and electrochemical behavior. The results indicate that the hardness of the alloys increases in line with the increasing chromium content, and reduces with increasing molybdenum content.In addition, the open-circuit potential, polarization resistivity, and linear sweep voltammetry disclose that passivity improves in line with the increasing Cr content, whereas reduced modulus demonstrates an inflection at 30 wt% of Cr. These findings are in agreement with previous research on the metallurgical properties of cobalt-chromium-molybdenum systems.Cobalt-based alloys possess many desirable properties, such as heat resistance (strong at very high temperatures), wear resistance, and corrosion resistance. They are generally categorized into softer and harder grades, based on the crystallographic nature of cobalt (its sensitivity to stress), the solid-solution-strengthening effects of chromium, tungsten, and molybdenum, the formation of metal carbides, and the corrosion resistance imparted by chromium. The softer and tougher compositions are usually employed in high-temperature applications such as gas turbine vanes and buckets, while the more rigid grades are used to withstand wear and tear.
