The other source of vector is the reaction between the zirconium and water.
The zirconium alloy will react with water to produce hydrogen and oxide, but it also produces heat that has to be removed.
He specialized in research and development in zirconium products, and allegedly had distant ties to Iran.
A lamp-filament of titanium and zirconium with electric lamps or with alloys?
The use of zirconium has been in an experimental state, and known sources of supply have been ample for all requirements.
zirconium chlorid has an astringent taste, and if fed repeatedly will cause the metallic astringent action.
zirconium, a metallic element often found in connection with silica, commonly in the form of a black powder.
On the prolonged boiling of the filtrate, the oxide of titanium (and oxide of zirconium, if any) is precipitated.
In addition Davy anticipated the isolation of silicon, aluminium, and zirconium.
The chief bulk of the zirconium is found in the aqueous solution in the state of double fluorides.
zirconium zir·co·ni·um (zûr-kō'nē-əm)
A strong ductile metallic element obtained primarily from zircon. Atomic number 40; atomic weight 91.22; melting point 1,855°C; boiling point 4,409°C; specific gravity 6.51 (20°C); valence 2, 3, 4.
A shiny, grayish-white metallic element that occurs primarily in zircon. It is used to build nuclear reactors because of its ability to withstand bombardment by neutrons even at high temperatures. Zirconium is also highly resistant to corrosion, making it a useful component of pumps, valves, and alloys. Atomic number 40; atomic weight 91.22; melting point 1,852°C; boiling point 4,377°C; specific gravity 6.56 (20°C); valence 2, 3, 4. See Periodic Table.
