Zinc (Kaitlyn Sullivan)

  1. 1. By: Kaitlyn Sullivan
  2. 2. • Discovered in 1746 by a Chemist named Andreas Marggraf in Germany • The name originates from “Zin”, which is a German word meaning tin. Andreas Marggraf
  3. 3. Properties State at room temp.: Solid Color: Bluish-white Melting point: 419.58 ° C Boiling point: 907 ° C Density: 7.133 g/Cm3
  4. 4. Any Important Properties? Zinc is the most electro- positive of the common metals, which makes it useful as protection against corrosion in steam boilers and on hulls of steel ships.
  5. 5. UsesUsed to form many alloys Used in electric fuses Used in metal coating Used in gutters Used as rust protection Can be used as a medical use to treat rashes Used in roofing and some battery containers
  6. 6. Important Compounds • Zinc Chloride: Used as deodorant and as a wood preservative • Zinc Oxide: Used in paints • Zinc Sulfide: Used as luminescents, and to make x-ray and tv screens
  7. 7. Zinc Isotopes • Zinc has 5 isotopes with natural abundance: Zinc-64, Zinc-66, Zinc-67, Zinc-68, and Zinc-70 • Also has 25 radioactive isotopes • Zinc-65 is a radioactive isotope that has been used as a tracer to study physical and biological events. It is injected into a system then it gives off radiation, which can be followed.
  8. 8. Availability • Obtained from zinc blende and calamine • Costs $0.70 /Ib • One of the most common elements in earth’s crust • Found in air, soil, water, and present in almost all foods • Foods such as red meats, poultry, and many cereals are good sources of zinc
  9. 9. Interesting Facts • Zinc is an important mineral in the body that helps in the formation of protein, wound healing, blood formation, supports immune system, it’s involved in metabolic processes and many more. Adults need 90 milligrams each day. Did you know that zinc is the 4th most common metal in use? •Every cell requires zinc to multiply
