Antimony powder is a semimetallic chemical element. It exists in two forms such as the metallic form is bright, silvery, hard and brittle; the non-metallic form is a grey powder. It is stable in dry air and it is a poor conductor of heat and electricity. Moreover, it is not attacked by dilute acids or alkalis. Antimony and its alloys inflate on cooling. Antimony is increasingly being employed in semiconductors as a dopant in n-type silicon wafers for infrared detectors, diodes, and hall-effect devices.
Antimony powder: It has been known since ancient times. It is sometimes found free in nature, however, it is usually acquired from the ores stibnite (Sb2S3) and valentinite (Sb2O3). Antimony-based drugs, for instance, meglumine antimoniate are also considered the drugs of choice for treatment of diseases for example leishmaniasis in domestic animals. The compound of antimony is antimony sulfide which is employed in the heads of some safety matches. In addition, Antimony is utilized in bullets, bullet tracers, paint, glass art, and as an opacifier in enamel.
Antimony powder is alloyed with lead to enhance lead's durability. Antimony alloys are also utilized in batteries, low friction metals, type metal, and cable sheathing, among other products. The compounds of Antimony are used to make flame-proofing materials, ceramic enamels, paints, glass, and pottery.
The ancient Egyptians employed antimony, in the form of stibnite, for black eye make-up. Antimony compounds are extensively employed as flame retardants in paints, plastics, rubber, and textiles. Several other antimony compounds are utilized as paints; tartar emetic (an organic salt of antimony) is employed in the textile industry to aid in binding certain dyes to fabrics. It is also utilized in medicine as an expectorant and nauseant.
Antimony powder: It is utilized in the electronics industry to make some semiconductor devices. It is alloyed with lead or other metals to enhance their hardness and strength. A lead-antimony alloy is used in batteries. Other uses of antimony alloys involve type metal (in printing presses), bullets and cable sheathing. Antimony is mainly employed as the trioxide for flame-proofing compounds.
