Iron metal possesses a gray lustrous appearance, has no odor, practically insoluble in water, but soluble in dilute acids at ambient conditions. It is stable in dry air but readily oxidizes in the presence of moisture forming hydrated oxide or rust. It can be available in extremely small particle size having a high surface-area-to-volume ratio, surface modifiability, excellent magnetic properties, and great biocompatibility. Metallic Iron can be produced in two ways from its ore. The first method, involving blast furnace, is the predominant method that involves treatment of Iron ore mixed with cole and fluxes by preheated air. The second method is direct smelting by using coal instead of coke.
