Description

Mercury is the only metal that appears as a silver color liquid at room temperature. It was formerly named hydrargyrum and is also termed quicksilver. It is naturally available as cinnabar, a sulfide compound of mercury that produces red vermilion upon grinding. Quadruple Distilled Mercury is the highly pure form of mercury available in the market due to its four-stage distillation process. Our premium quality Mercury Metal (99.9995%) is equivalent to prime virgin mercury and is certified as the reagent grade by the American Chemical Society (ACS). It is also referred to as instrument grade, reagent grade, and dental grade due to its high purity.

  • Uses: Mercury is used for gold amalgamation. Mercury is an ingredient in dental amalgams. Mercury is also used in the production of chlorine and caustic soda, and as a component of many electrical devices, including fluorescent and mercury-vapor lamps. Mercury is used primarily for the manufacture of industrial chemicals or for electrical and electronic applications. It is used in some thermometers, especially ones which are used to measure high temperatures. Mercury, as thiomersal, is widely used in the manufacture of cosmetics and mascara. A still increasing amount is used as gaseous mercury in fluorescent lamps, while most of the other applications are slowly phased out due to health and safety regulations and is in some applications replaced with less toxic but considerably more expensive Galinstan alloy.
  • Mercury Toxicity And Safety: Mercury and most of its compounds are extremely toxic and must be handled with care.
  • Mercury Regulations: In the United States, the Environmental Protection Agency is charged with regulating and managing mercury contamination.
  • Mercury readily forms alloys with other metals which makes it useful in the processing of gold and silver.

Mercury Metal (Liquid Mercury, Metallic Mercury) Product Overview

Learn About The Element Called Mercury At Wikipedia

A heavy, silvery d-block element, mercury is the only metallic element that is liquid at standard conditions for temperature and pressure; the only other element that is liquid under these conditions is the halogen bromine, though metals such as caesium, gallium, and rubidium melt just above room temperature.

Mercury is a chemical element with the symbol Hg and atomic number 80. It is commonly known as quicksilver and was formerly named hydrargyrum. A heavy, silvery d-block element, mercury is the only metallic element that is liquid at standard conditions for temperature and pressure; the only other element that is liquid under these conditions is the halogen bromine, though metals such as caesium, gallium, and rubidium melt just above room temperature. 

Mercury occurs in deposits throughout the world mostly as cinnabar (mercuric sulfide). The red pigment vermilion is obtained by grinding natural cinnabar or synthetic mercuric sulfide. 

Mercury is used in thermometers, barometers, manometers, sphygmomanometers, float valves, mercury switches, mercury relays, fluorescent lamps and other devices, though concerns about the element's toxicity have led to mercury thermometers and sphygmomanometers being largely phased out in clinical environments in favor of alternatives such as alcohol- or galinstan-filled glass thermometers and thermistor- or infrared-based electronic instruments. Likewise, mechanical pressure gauges and electronic strain gauge sensors have replaced mercury sphygmomanometers.

Mercury remains in use in scientific research applications and in amalgam for dental restoration in some locales. It is also used in fluorescent lighting. Electricity passed through mercury vapor in a fluorescent lamp produces short-wave ultraviolet light, which then causes the phosphor in the tube to fluoresce, making visible light.

Mercury poisoning can result from exposure to water-soluble forms of mercury (such as mercuric chloride or methylmercury), by inhalation of mercury vapor, or by ingesting any form of mercury.

Learn About Mercury At PubChem

Mercury is an element with atomic symbol Hg, atomic number 80, and atomic weight 200.59; a heavy, silvery-white metal, liquid at room temperature, a rather poor conductor of heat and a fair conductor of electricity.

Mercury combines with other elements, such as chlorine, sulfur, or oxygen, to form inorganic mercury compounds or "salts", which are usually white powders or crystals. Mercury also combines with carbon to make organic mercury compounds. The most common one, methylmercury, is produced mainly by microscopic organisms in the water and soil. More mercury in the environment can increase the amounts of methylmercury that these small organisms make.

Mercury appears as an odorless, silvery metallic liquid. Insoluble in water. Toxic by ingestion, absorption and inhalation of the fumes. Corrosive to aluminum. Used as a catalyst in instruments, boilers, mirror coatings.

Mercury Safety And Hazards Information From PubChem

No immediate symptoms. As poisoning becomes established, slight muscular tremor, loss of appetite, nausea, and diarrhea are observed. Psychic, kidney, and cardiovascular disturbances may occur.

Learn About Amalgams From Wikipedia

An amalgam is an alloy of mercury with another metal. It may be a liquid, a soft paste or a solid, depending upon the proportion of mercury. These alloys are formed through metallic bonding, with the electrostatic attractive force of the conduction electrons working to bind all the positively charged metal ions together into a crystal lattice structure. Almost all metals can form amalgams with mercury, the notable exceptions being iron, platinum, tungsten, and tantalum. Silver-mercury amalgams are important in dentistry, and gold-mercury amalgam is used in the extraction of gold from ore. Dentistry has used alloys of mercury with metals such as silver, copper, indium, tin and zinc.

I am very pleased with the quality of the mercury I was provided. It's a bit pricy, but given the relative low quantities of the element on Earth, the purity of distillation, and the need for profit, I understand the price. I would recommend having more variety of mercury products such as double distilled for those projects that don't demand as much purity.
