Unusual elemental additions.

14 May 2009 - 11:40 AM

Hi all

This is more of a curiosity type question rather than something that I am about to do so please do not savage me for suggesting something stupid here.

I realise I am a complete novice and really need to get some standard compositions under my belt before trying to invent anything new quite just yet.

However :rolleyes:

I was wondering how some other powdered elemental substances perform as there are several others that are never mentioned that I am curious to know about.

I am sure I am not the first to have thought about trying these and anything of any merit would be mentioned frequently unless the experimenter vapourised himself before he could pass the info on. :blink:

The elements in question are:

Nickel powder
Chromium powder
Cobalt powder
Molybdenum powder
Copper powder (this is probably reasonable)
Indium powder (violet?)
Tantalum powder
Tungsten powder (probably too high a mp)

All of these are available at not too prohibitive a cost.
Just curious really and could anyone advise please.

Thanks people.
