Glass bead doped with Palladium (Pd3+) Ions
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.
Beautiful optical glass beads doped with metal ions.
Elaborately and individually manufactured by us in the laboratory from highly pure reagents.
Gorgeous beads showing the typical colors of different metal ions in different oxidation states.
They can be used for save demonstration of different colors of the metal compounds or just for collecting.
