Introduction to Zirconium Silicide ZrSi2 Powder

Brazil, the world's largest coffee bean producer, recently announced that it is facing the worst drought in 91 years, affecting local hydropower generation and agricultural ZrSi2 Powder keeps going up.

Introduction to Zirconium Silicide ZrSi2 Powder
Zirconium silicide or zirconium disilicide is an organic compound, the chemical formula ZrSi2, is one of the silicides of zirconium.
It can be made by the reaction of silicon and zirconium at 1100 °C or by the reaction of silicon and zirconium dioxide: 
ZrO2 + 4Si -- ZrSi2 + 2SiO
When heated in the air, it forms a protective film of zirconium silicate. 
 

Physicochemical Properties of Zirconium Silicide ZrSi2 Powder
ZrSi2 is insoluble in water, inorganic acid, and aqua regia, but soluble in hydrofluoric acid.
As a zirconium-silicon intermetallic compound, ZrSi2 is a kind of ceramic material with high hardness, high melting point, high conductivity, high heat conductivity, and good thermal shock resistance to high temperature.

Related Elements
Si Silicon
Silicon (atomic symbol Si, atomic number 14) is an element of unit P in group 14 of period 3, with an atomic mass of 28.085. The number of electrons in each shell of silbohr silicon is 2,8,4, and its electron configuration is [Ne] 3s2, 3p2. The radius of a silicon atom is 11 pm and the van der Waals radius is 210pm. By weight, silicon makes up 25.7 percent of the earth's crust and is the second most abundant element after oxygen. These metals rarely exist in pure crystal form and are usually made from an iron-silicon alloy called ferrosilicon. Element Silicon (or silicon dioxide), such as sand, is the main component of glass, which is one of the cheapest materials and has excellent mechanical, optical, thermal, and electrical properties. Ultra-pure silicon can be doped with boron, gallium, phosphorus, or arsenic to produce silicon, which is used in transistors, solar cells, rectifiers, and other solid-state devices widely used in the electronics industry.
 
Zr Zirconium
Zirconium (Zr, atomic symbol Zr, atomic number 40) is a group D element of period 5 with an atomic mass of 91.224. Each zirconium layer has an electron number of 2,8,18,10,2 and an electron configuration of [Kr]4d2 5s2. The zirconium atom has a radius of 160pm and a van der Waals radius of 186pm. In its elemental form, zirconium has a silvery-white appearance similar to that of titanium. The main mineral of zirconium is zircon (zirconium silicate). Zirconium is commercially produced as a by-product of titanium and tin mining and has many applications as an opaque and refractory.  It is not a free element in nature. 
 
Zirconium plays an important role in industrial, medical, and defense applications around the world. Zircon metals are used as key components in many alloys due to their high strength and corrosion resistance. Zirconium alloys with high compressive strength are used in important naval and aerospace industries as components of submarine casings and high-speed aircraft alloys. Zircon's low neutron absorption properties make it irreplaceable in the inner components of fusion engines. In addition, zirconium silicate and zirconium dioxide are minerals with high refractive index and wear resistance, so they can be used in high-temperature furnace lining, refractory ceramics, and nanotechnology industries.

Since February, gold has enjoyed a smooth upward run on the back of surging US inflation and the brewing of war. While expectations of rate rises have also risen in tandem over this period, gold had been largely pre-priced and the underlying driver of tightening expectations had come from inflation continuing to rise to record highs. The risk aversion caused by the continued tension in the war also provided an important short-term support for gold. This will have a certain impact on the price of the ZrSi2 Powder and the market of the ZrSi2 Powder.
