Stumbled upon today a post about a broken thermometer, revered some comments, remembered that promised to write a post about Mercury. Mercury is known and used by mankind since ancient times, in view of which surroundeded the fog of myths, rumors and prejudices.
On the one hand it is a highly toxic element of periodical system of chemical elements of D. I. Mendeleev, on the other hand-not so terrible devil. After all (concerning all substances) the matter is not in the substance, but in the ability to treat it and in the anatomical arrangement of hands of this or that person. As the proverb says-Give a fool glass * uy... To discard skates with the same success it is possible and from more widespread substances. But nobody is safe from accidents anyway. Hope the post you like.
Mercury is an amazing and unique element, I would even say-beautiful. Quite a rare metal. It is the only metal that is liquid at room temperature. Alchemists betrayed Mercury most important, considering that Zatverdevaja Mercury turns into gold (alchemists generally harsh guys, even urine because of the color of the gold to turn tried). They also assigned mercury to the symbol mercury, which it is denoted until now. The international designation HG (Hidrargirum) is translated from Latin as  "Liquid silver ".
Now mercury and its compounds are used quite widely in industry (especially in metallurgy), in technology (thermometers, barometers, position sensors), in Medecine (formerly even drank mercury for the treatment of bowels), in the chemical industry and in Agriculture. With most metals forms terdye and liquid alloys-amalgam. (Neblshoe retreat with regards to red mercury-it does not exist. In pure form the isotopes of mercury color do not change, in compounds may have a reddish tint, but nothing more miraculous. Red Mercury lies on a shelf between a kilogram of dead mosquitoes and the game  " Electronics  "with Disney cartoon).

How much is 1 kg of red mercury: Market prices, news, reviews, analytics, statistics, commercial offers, buying and selling. How much does mercury cost on the black market: Market prices, news, reviews, analytics, statistics, commercial offers, buying and selling.

No one ever knew what it was. The declared characteristics are strictly mutually exclusive: Radioactive, density 20-20 g/cc, is explosive, is used in atomic weapons, the cost of a million dollars per gram (California costs $6.5 m per gram, and what organics-and $16 m for Gram , but California and this organics are products of complex synthesis, and the red mercury, first, does not exist, and secondly, it is supposed that it kagbje quite ordinary phenomenon in the nature), is badly demanded in the world market, etc., and so on, as far as the imagination sufficed.

Red mercury is similar to the blood of robots. It was believed that this is the 234 element of the XIV additional subgroup of the Mendeleev plaque with the atomic mass of something like 1234.56 (in the “island of stability” synthesized a couple of atoms of “red lead”, because contrary to konspirologam this “island” stubbornly Starts from 114, not from 112 element, i.e. electronic shells are related to lead, not mercury). When heated to the desired temperature, the red mercury reacts with all available elements, which causes a rapid uncontrollable chain reaction and causes an explosion, the power equal to hundred vacuum bombs or one too pressurized rubber. At heating to temperatures above 700 degrees Kelvin, red Mercury turns to gold, at temperatures more than 1000 K-in platinum, and at heating more than 400 on Reomjuru-in copper.

Also there were rumors that Sabzh is used in the “detonator of thermonuclear bombs”, or in “heavy-duty military lasers”. And during the excavation of the Egyptian pyramids red mercury persecuted archaeologists by the fact that Yad. Also mention the famous bike that the metal tube with red mercury is an antenna that takes and amplifies any signals, but only immediately after the installation of thereof after you comes bloody fight with all the ensuing. In a word, a magnificent porridge from properties from a category «Magic water which is only at the Tsar».

tells us that the most common “red mercury” means mercury Hg2sb2o7. This substance is a powder of dark brown color, but of course neither the declared density at the level of the OS, nor radioactivity, nor any other fantastic properties of this substance does not possess. Its difference from other compounds of mercury consists in rather high heat resistance. If other mercury salts decompose already at a temperature about 300-350 degrees, withstands heating up to 700 degrees without decomposition.

Also mercury is widely used in atomprome as a solvent of metals, particularly for the extraction and transportation of weapons-grade plutonium. Similar version: “Red Mercury” developing for the bloody gebni Vundervafli, or rather nuclear and thermonuclear bombuje. That’s what they called weapon plutonium. Color (metal plutonium is actually grey and outwardly very similar to lead, but in granules of any appreciable size due to high activity heated to dim-cherry color) and density of Sabzha, and also chased other properties Kagbe indicated To the nature of this nickname.
