Tantalum Compounds & Catalysts

Tantalum Compounds are used in various fields. High-purity tantalum pentoxide and niobium pentoxide help to increase the refractive index of optical lenses and are used in optical lenses for high-end cameras and automotive cameras. Tantalum has excellent reactivity with chlorides and compounds. Tantalum Pentachloride is used as the chlorinating agent of the organic compound and chemical intermediates.

Tantalum Compound & Catalysts

Tantalum is a shiny, silvery metal that is very resistant to corrosion. One of the main uses of tantalum is in the production of electronic components. An oxide layer which forms on the surface of tantalum can act as an insulating (dielectric) layer. Because tantalum can be used to coat other metals with a very thin layer, a high capacitance can be achieved in a small volume. This makes tantalum capacitors attractive for portable electronics such as mobile phones.

Tantalum causes no immune response in mammals, so has found wide use in the making of surgical implants. It can replace bone, for example in skull plates; as foil or wire it connects torn nerves; and as woven gauze it binds abdominal muscle.

It is very resistant to corrosion and so is used in equipment for handling corrosive materials. It has also found uses as electrodes for neon lights, AC/DC rectifiers and in glass for special lenses.
