46
Atom. weight: 106.42
Density: 12
Class:
platinum metal
Melting point: 1554°C

Discoverer: W.H. Woollaston
Place: London, England
Year: 1803

Discovered in 1803 by W.H. Woollaston in London, England. Palladium is a member of the platinum group of metals. It is silvery white in color, is malleable and ductile, and is one of the most reactive in the group. It has an abundance of 6x10-6 in the earth's crust. Palladium has good corrosion resistance but is soluble in oxidising acids and fused alkalis. It readily absorbs hydrogen gas (up to 900 times its own volume), but its main use is as a catalyst for hydrogenation. Palladium is also used within the electronics industry and in some dental applications.

Glass bead doped with Palladium (Pd3+) Ions

Material: BaP:0.4Pd3+

Size about 13mm - Weight ~ 1 - 1.2g

Nice glass bead. Each one handmade of phosphate glass in our lab.

Doping glasses with Palladium is a very complicated task and several attempts failed due to the extremely low solublity of Pd in any glass matrix. Finally I was able to successfully produce some Pd3+ containing glass samples. The max. concentration of Pd3+ is about 0.4 mol%. All attempts with higher amounts failed.
