• ATSDR concludes that even though the maximum level of some of the metals detected in Vieques soil is moderately elevated in comparison to soil elsewhere (Puerto Rico and the United States), the levels are not inconsistent with what one would expect from soils also underlain by igneous or volcanic rocks. (cdc.gov)
  • ATSDR concludes that the composition of the soils of Vieques including their constituent metal content is strongly influenced by the parent material (underlying geologic units) from which those soils are derived. (cdc.gov)
  • During the rusting of iron, iron metal combines with the oxygen of air in the presence of water to form hydrated iron (III) oxide, Fe 2 O 3 .xH 2 O. (the number of molecules of water x varies, it is not fixed). (hubpages.com)
  • Room-temperature liquid metals have a number of interesting surface and bulk properties that make them intriguing for a variety of engineering applications, including flexible electronics and microfluidics ( 1 ). (sciencemag.org)
  • So, when a thin layer of tin metal (or chromium) is deposited on iron and steel objects by electroplating, then they are protected from rusting. (hubpages.com)
  • My description is: Extraction is based on the principle that a certain solute will dissolve in two immiscible phases, one of which is usually liquid. (jiskha.com)
  • Doc spent much time trying to figure out where he went wrong to give her such a personality, ascribing much of it to heavy Aurora Borealis activity during the Metal Men's creation. (rutgers.edu)
  • ATSDR concludes that it appears that the soils of the LIA have been influenced by Navy training activities and do contain elevated levels of heavy metals. (cdc.gov)
  • Iron and heavy metals. (medlineplus.gov)
  • its core is believed to occupy about 85% of its radius and to consist of a probably solid iron core, surrounded by a liquid iron layer, which is surrounded by a solid iron-sulfide layer. (thefreedictionary.com)

  • Defying 30 mph gusts and temperatures down to minus 22 F, NASA 's new polar rover recently demonstrated in Greenland that it could operate completely autonomously in one of Earth's harshest environments. (innovationtoronto.com)
  • Like other groups of the periodic table, the members of group 12 show patterns in its electron configuration, especially the outermost shells, which result in trends in their chemical behavior: Group 12 elements are all soft, diamagnetic, divalent metals. (wikipedia.org)
  • They were apparently composed mostly of the metals for which they were named (Ever wonder how their creator, Doc Magnus, got his hands on so much pure gold and platinum? (rutgers.edu)
  • Gold: the noble metal was the nominal leader of the group. (rutgers.edu)
  • Napthalene is dissolved in a liquid with which it forms an ideal solution at 25C. (jiskha.com)
  • The levels of metals in the soils of the Live Impact Area (LIA) were examined to determine if they had been affected by Navy training activities. (cdc.gov)
  • A temperature sensor is a data gathering tool that measures the temperature in the surrounding area and converts the information for use by an observer or additional devices. (reference.com)
