Mercury, also called quicksilver, is a chemical element in planet mercury the periodic table that has the symbol Hg (from mercury cougar the Latinized Greek hydrargyrum, for watery [or liquid] silver) and atomic number 80. A heavy, silvery transition metal, mercury is one mercury outboard parts of five elements that are liquid at or near standard room temperature (the mercury outboard others are the metals caesium, francium, and gallium, and the nonmetal bromine). mercury element Mercury is used in mercury poisoning thermometers, barometers and other scientific apparatus, although the use of mercury in thermometers has been largely phased lincoln mercury out in clinical and scientific environments (in favor of mercury mariner alcohol-filled, digital or thermistor-based replacements) due to concerns about the element's toxicity. Mercury was used in dental amalgam mercury retrograde for the last two hundred years, but this use is also being phased out because of toxicity. freddy mercury Mercury is mercury planet mostly obtained by reduction from the mineral cinnabar.

Mercury is used primarily for mercury mountaineer the manufacture of industrial chemicals or pottstown mercury for electrical and electronic applications. It is used in some thermometers, especially element mercury ones which are used to measure high temperatures (In the United States, non-prescription sale of mercury fever thermometers is banned guelph mercury by a number of different states and localities). Other uses:

  • Mercury sphygmomanometers.
  • Mercury barometers, mercury outboard motor parts diffusion pumps, coulometers, and many other laboratory instruments. As an opaque liquid mercury outboard motor with a very high density, it mercury boat motors is ideal for this role.
  • The triple point of mercury, -38.8344 °C, is a fixed point used as a temperature standard for freddie mercury mp3 the International lincoln ford mercury in utah Temperature Scale (ITS-90).
  • In some gaseous electron tubes, mercury arc rectifier
  • Gaseous mercury is used in mercury-vapor lamps and san jose mercury some "neon sign" type advertising signs and fluorescent lamps.
  • Liquid mercury was sometimes used as a coolant for nuclear reactors. However sodium manhattan mercury is proposed for reactors cooled mercury poisoning symptoms with liquid metal, because the high density of mercury requires much energy for circulating the coolant.
  • Mercury was once used in the amalgamation 1951 mercury process of mercury parts refining gold and silver ores. This polluting practice is still used by the garimpeiros (gold mercury motors miners) of the Amazon basin in Brazil.
  • Mercury is still used in some cultures for folk medicine and ceremonial purposes which may involve mercury sable ingestion, 1967 mercury cougar injection, or the sprinkling of elemental mercury around the home. It must be emphasized that the former two procedures, 1950 mercury especially, are extremely hazardous.
  • Alexander Calder built a mercury fountain for the Spanish Pavilion mercury in retrograde at the 1937 World's Fair in Paris. The fountain is mercury news now on display at the Fundació Miró in Barcelona.
  • Used in 1955 mercury montclair electrochemistry as part of a secondary reference electrode called the calomel electrode as an alternative to the Standard mercury dimes Hydrogen Electrode. This is used to work out the electrode potential of the planet mercury half cells.

Miscellaneous uses: mercury switches, electrodes in some types of electrolysis, batteries (mercury cells, including for sodium hydroxide 1955 mercury carburetor kit and chlorine production, and alkaline batteries), catalysts, insecticides, dental amalgams/preparations and liquid mirror telescopes.

  • Thiomersal, (called mercury montego Thimerosal in the United States), an organic compound used as mercury 7 a preservative in vaccines (this use is disappearing[1] and project mercury Thiomersal controversy).

Historical uses: preserving wood, developing daguerreotypes, silvering mirrors, anti-fouling paints (discontinued in 1990), herbicides (discontinued in mercury rev 1995), cleaning, and in-road leveling devices in cars. 1965 mercury comet Mercury compounds have been used in antiseptics, laxatives, antidepressants, and antisyphilitics. It was also allegedly used hp and mercury interactive by allied spies to sabotage German planes. mercury thermometer A mercury paste was applied to bare aluminium, causing the metal to rapidly corrode. This mercury villager would cause mysterious structural failures.

In Islamic Spain it was 1954 mercury used for filling decorative pools and for fountains.[2]

In some applications, mercury can be replaced with less toxic but considerably 1969 mercury cougar more expensive galinstan alloy.

A new type of leicester mercury atomic clock, using mercury instead of caesium, has been demonstrated. Accuracy is expected to be within one second in 100 million years.[3][4]


Mercury was 1951 mercury for sale known to the ancient Chinese and Hindus and was found in Egyptian tombs 1968 mercury cougar that date from 1500 BC.citation needed] In 2000 mercury cougar China, India and Tibet, mercury use was mercury in fish thought to prolong life, heal fractures, and maintain generally good health. China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang Di—said to have mercury topaz been buried in a tomb that contained rivers of the mercury flowing mercury, representative of the rivers of China—was driven insane and killed by mercury 1953 mercury pills intended to give him eternal life. The ancient Greeks used mercury in ointments and the mercury interactive Romans used it in cosmetics. By 500 BCE mercury was used to mercury marquis make amalgams with other metals. The Indian word for alchemy is Rasavātam which means ‘the mercury maurader way of mercury.’ Alchemists often thought of mercury as the first mercury props matter from which all metals were formed. Different metals could be produced by varying ford lincoln mercury the quality and quantity of sulfur contained mercury cougar xr7 within the mercury. An ability to transform mercury into any metal resulted mercury blues from the essentially mercurial quality of all metals. The purest of portland mercury these was gold, and mercury was required for the transmutation of base (or impure) metals into gold. This 1957 mercury monterey was a primary goal of alchemy, either for material or spiritual gain.

Hg is the modern chemical mercury switch symbol for mercury. It comes from hydrargyrum, a Latinized form symptoms of mercury poisoning of the Greek word `Υδραργυρος (hydrargyros), which is a mercury cyclone compound word meaning 'water' and 'silver' — since it is liquid, like water, and yet has a silvery metallic mercury marine parts sheen. The element was named after the mercury outboard engines Roman god Mercury, known for speed and mobility. It is associated with the planet Mercury. The astrological symbol for mercury recalls the planet is also one of the alchemical symbols for mercury rising the metal (above left). Mercury is the only metal for which the alchemical planetary name became mercury tilt switch the common name.

From the mid-18th to the mid-19th centuries, mercury toxicity a process called "carroting" was used in the making of felt hats. Animal skins were rinsed in an mercury tracer orange solution of the mercury comet mercury compound mercuric nitrate, Hg(NO3)2·2H2O. This process separated the fur from the pelt and matted it together. This solution mercury the element and the vapors it produced were highly toxic. Its use resulted 1970 mercury cyclone in widespread cases of mercury poisoning among hatters. Symptoms included tremors, emotional lability, 67 mercury cougar insomnia, dementia and hallucinations. The United States Public Health Service banned the use of mercury records mercury in the felt industry in December 1941. The psychological symptoms associated with mercury poisoning may have mercury vehicles inspired the phrase "mad as a hatter"; see the hatter article on the origin of mercury mariner hybrid the phrase.


Elemental mercury is the main ingredient in dental amalgams. Controversy over the health facts on the planet mercury effects from the use of mercury amalgams began shortly after its introduction into the western world, nearly 200 years ago. In mercury auto parts 1843, The American Society of Dental Surgeons, concerned about mercury poisoning, required its members mercury quicksilver propellers to sign a pledge that they would not use amalgam. In 1859, The from interactive mercury software testing tool winrunner American Dental Association was formed by dentists who believed amalgam liquid mercury was "safe and effective." The ADA, "continues to believe that amalgam is a mercury optimax valuable, viable and safe choice for dental patients," as written in their statement on dental amalgam.[5] In 1993, the United States Public san jose mercury newspaper Health Service reported that, "amalgam fillings release small amounts of mercury vapor," but mercury marquis rim wheel tire in such a small amount that it, "has not been shown mercury mistress to cause any … adverse health effects." This position is not shared by all governments and there is an ongoing dental 1959 mercury commuter amalgam controversy. A recent review by an FDA appointed advisory 1994 mercury topaz panel, the panelists, in a 13-7 vote, rejected the current FDA report on amalgam safety stating mercury digital camera the the report's conclusions weren't reasonable, given the quantity and quality mercury in pisces of information currently available. Panelists said remaining mercury insurance group uncertainties about the risk of so-called silver fillings demanded further research, in mercury outboard manual particular, on the effects of mercury-laden fillings on children and the fetuses of pregnant women with pictures of mercury fillings and the release of mercury vapor on insertion and removal of mercury fillings.[6] [7]


Mercury and its compounds have been used in medicine for centuries, although they mercury propellers are much less common today than they once were, now that the toxic effects of mercury and its mercury automobiles compounds are more widely known and understood.

Mercury(I) chloride (also known as calomel or mercurous mercury car insurance chloride) has traditionally been used as a diuretic, topical disinfectant, and laxative. Mercury(II) chloride (also known as mercuric new york central train mercury chloride or corrosive sublimate) was once used to treat mercury auto syphilis (along with other mercury compounds), mercury car parts although it is so toxic that sometimes the symptoms of its toxicity were confused with those mercury fillings of the syphilis it was believed to treat (Pimple 2004); mercury space food it was also used as a disinfectant. Blue mass, a pill or syrup in which mercury is the main ingredient, 1969 mercury cyclone was prescribed throughout the 1800s for numerous density of mercury conditions including constipation, depression, child-bearing and toothaches.[8] In the mercury capri parts early 20th century, mercury was administered to children yearly as a laxative and dewormer, and it was used in teething powders for infants.

Some vaccines have mercury insurance company contained the preservative Thimerosal (partly ethyl mercury radio install mercury) since the 1930s FDA report.[9] It has been widely speculated that this mercury-based preservative can trigger autism mercury symbol in children who are already genetically predisposed to it;[10] however, who discovered the planet mercury medical evidence in recent studies has 1959 mercury revealed that there is no link. [11]

Mercury in the form of one of 1960 mercury its common ores, cinnabar, remains an important component of Chinese, Tibetan, 2007 mercury mariner and Ayurvedic medicine. As problems may arise when these medicines are lazare ford lincoln mercury car dealer exported to countries that prohibit the use of mercury in medicines, mercury medical in recent times, less toxic substitutes have been devised.

Today, the use of mercury in medicine has greatly declined in all respects, especially in developed countries. mercury suv Thermometers and sphygmomanometers containing mercury were invented in 1940 mercury the early 18th and late 1963 mercury 19th centuries, respectively. In the early 21st century, their use is declining and has been banned in some countries, states and medical institutions. 2002 mercury cougar In 2002, the U.S. Senate passed legislation to phase out freddie mercury living on my own the sale of non-prescription mercury thermometers. In 2003, Washington and Maine became the first states to ban mercury mercury computer systems blood pressure devices.[12] Mercury compounds are found in some over-the-counter drugs, including topical antiseptics, stimulant laxatives, diaper-rash ointment, eye drops, and nasal sprays. The 1949 mercury FDA (FDA) has “inadequate data to falls ford lincoln mercury wichita establish general recognition of the safety and effectiveness,” of the mercury ingredients in these products.[13] Mercury is still mercury marauder performance parts used in some diuretics, although substitutes now exist for most therapeutic uses.

In the European mercury mp3 Union, RoHS legislation being introduced will mercury thruster ban mercury from certain products, and limit the amount of mercury 2001 mercury cougar in other products to less than 1000 ppm (except for certain exemptions).

Mineral occurrence

Mercury ore

Mercury is an extremely mercury facts rare element in the earth's crust, having an average crustal abundance by mass of only 0.08 parts per million. However, because it mercury marine engines does not blend geochemically with those elements that mercury recall comprise the majority of the crustal mass, mercury ores can be extraordinarily concentrated considering 100 hp mercury outboard the element's abundance in 1991 mercury capri ordinary rock. The richest mercury ores contain up to 2.5% mercury by mass, and even the 73 mercury cougar xr7 leanest concentrated deposits are at least 0.1% mercury (12,000 times average crustal abundance). This makes mercury ore the most easily depleted of club mercury cougar all metal freddie mercury biography ores. Depletion of mercury ores has been a major concern since the 1960s and free vehicle history report for 1969 mercury monterey it is now almost certain that the last mineable deposits were discovered in Algeria in greek god mercury the mid-1970s. Since the early 1970s, total world production of mercury has fallen from 9,000 tonnes to 1,600 tonnes due to depletion mercury automobile of reserves.

It is found either as a native metal (rare) or in new mercury suv cinnabar, corderoite, livingstonite, and other minerals with cinnabar (HgS) being 1955 mercury the most common ore. Mercury ores usually occur in very young 1979 mercury capri orogenic belts where rock of high density are forced to celebrity mercury the crust of the Earth, often in hot springs or other volcanic regions. Most present-day production occurs in Spain, Kyrgyzstan, China ford mercury and Tajikistan. Over 100,000 tons of mercury were mined mercury in glass thermometer from the region of Huancavelica, Peru, over the course mercury lounge of three centuries following the discovery of deposits there in 1563; mercury from Huancavelica was mercury water mouse crucial in the production of silver in colonial Spanish America. Many former ores in Italy, Slovenia, on mercury the United States and Mexico who invented the mercury thermometer which once produced a large proportion of the world's supply have now 1956 mercury been completely mined out. The metal is extracted by heating cinnabar in a current of air and condensing the vapor. 1969 mercury montego mx The equation for this extraction is

HgS + O2 → Hg 1998 mercury mountaineer + SO2

The most important salts are:

  • Mercury(I) chloride (AKA calomel) is sometimes still used in 2000 mercury cougar owner's manual medicine and acousto-optical filters
  • Mercury(II) chloride (which is very corrosive, sublimates and is a first mercury insurance company violent poison)
  • Mercury fulminate, how do you winterize a mercury outboard motor (a detonator widely used in explosives),
  • Mercury(II) oxide, the main oxide of mercury
  • Mercury(II) sulfide (AKA cinnabar mercuric ore still used in oriental medicine, or mercury capri for sale vermilion which is a high-grade paint mercury car pigment),
  • Mercury(II) selenide a semiconductor,
  • Mercury(II) telluride a semiconductor, and
  • Mercury cadmium telluride and mercury zinc telluride, mercury dealer infrared detector materials.

Laboratory tests have found that an electrical discharge causes the mercury free fillings success stories noble gases to combine with mercury vapor. These compounds are held together with van der Waals forces and mercury logo result in HgNe, HgAr, HgKr, and HgXe. Organic mercury mercury outboard ignition switch compounds are also important. Methylmercury is a mercury poison dangerous compound that is widely found as a pollutant in water bodies and streams.

There are mercury redstone rocket seven stable isotopes of mercury with Hg-202 being the most abundant (29.86%). sara mercury The longest-lived radioisotopes are Hg-194 with a half-life of 444 facts about mercury years, and Hg-203 with a half-life of 46.612 days. Most of the remaining radioisotopes mercury flu shot have half-lifes that are less than a day.

Occurrence in the environment

Amount of atmospheric mercury deposited at Wyoming's Fremont Glacier mercury outboard forum over the last 270 years.


  • Crustal ~7×10-2 mg/kg
  • Oceans ~3×10-5 mg/l

Preindustrial deposition rates of mercury from the atmosphere mercury poisioning may be in the range of 4 ng/L in the mercury program western USA. Although that can be considered a natural level of exposure, mercury roman god regional or global sources have significant effects. Volcanic eruptions can increase the 1954 mercury parts restoration atmospheric source by 4–6 times.[14]

Mercury enters the 1975 mercury cougar environment as a pollutant from various industries:

  • coal-fired power plants are the largest source (40% of USA emissions in 1999).[15]
  • industrial processes
    • chlorine, steel, 1992 mercury topaz phosphate & gold production
    • metal smelting
    • manufacture & 55 mercury wagon repair of weather and electronic devices
    • incineration of municipal waste streams
  • medical applications, including vaccinations
    • dentistry
    • cosmetic industries
  • laboratory work involving mercury or career center at san jose mercury sulfur compounds

Mercury also enters into daniela mercury the environment through the disposal (e.g., landfilling, incineration) of certain products. Products containing mercury include: auto parts, batteries, fluorescent bulbs, medical products, for mercury fenders. thermometers, and thermostats.[16] Due to lincoln mercury car health concerns (see below), toxics use reduction efforts are cutting back or mercury county mutual insurance co eliminating mercury in such products. For example, most thermometers now use pigmented alcohol instead of mercury. Mercury thermometers are still mercury dealers occasionally used in the medical field because they are more accurate than alcohol thermometers, though mercury detoxification both are being replaced by electronic thermometers. Mercury mercury god thermometers are still widely used for certain scientific applications because of their greater accuracy and mercury orbitz working range.

One of the worst industrial disasters in history was caused by the dumping of mercury outboard parts diagram mercury compounds into Minamata Bay, Japan. The Chisso Corporation, a fertilizer mercury service texas and later petrochemical company, was found responsible for polluting the bay mercury software from 1932–1968. It is estimated that over 3,000 mercury sport jet people suffered various deformities, severe mercury poisoning symptoms or death from what became mercury vapor lamps known as Minamata disease.

Health and environmental effects

Precautions and regulation

See mercury poisoning

Mercury should be handled with care. mercury vehicles texas Containers of mercury should be securely sealed to avoid spills and evaporation. Heating of used mercury outboard motor parts mercury, or compounds of mercury that may decompose 1951 mercury automobile hood when heated, should always be carried out with adequate ventilation in order to avoid human exposure to 1965 mercury park lane convertible mercury vapor. Most of its compounds barcelona freddie mercury are highly toxic, especially its inorganic compounds.

Occupational exposure

Due to ford lincoln lumberton mercury the health effects of mercury exposure, industrial and commercial uses are regulated freddie mercury queen in many countries. The World Health Organization, OSHA, and NIOSH all treat mercury as an occupational hazard, and have established specific holst mercury occupational exposure limits. Environmental releases and disposal of mercury are regulated king ford lincoln mercury in the U.S. primarily by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Mercury in fish

Fish and lexar mercury shellfish have a natural tendency to concentrate mercury in maitland mercury their bodies, often in the form of methylmercury, a malpractice insurance first mercury insurance company highly toxic organic compound of mercury. Species of fish that are high on the food chain, such as shark, swordfish, king mackerel, albacore tuna, and tilefish mercury air center contain higher concentrations of mercury than others. This mercury boat motor is because mercury is stored mercury chemical element toxic periodic table in the muscle tissues of fish, and when a predatory fish eats another fish, it assumes the entire body burden of mercury mercury companies in the consumed fish. Since fish are less efficient at depurating than accumulating methylmercury, mercury dime fish-tissue concentrations increase over time. Thus species that are high on the mercury levels in fish food chain amass body burdens of mercury that can be ten times higher, or mercury merauder more, than the species they consume. This process mercury mercury is called biomagnification. The complexities associated with mercury fate and transport are relatively succinctly described by USEPA in their 1997 Mercury mercury motor Study Report to Congress. Because methylmercury and high levels of elemental mercury can mercury verado dimensions be phoenix mercury particularly toxic to unborn or young children, organizations such as the U.S. EPA and FDA recommend that women who are pregnant or 1946 mercury plan to become pregnant within the next one 1964 mercury or two years, as well as young children avoid eating more than 6 ounces (one average meal) 1968 mercury cyclone nascar of fish per week. In the United States the FDA car mercury restoration has an action level for methyl mercury crossroads ford lincoln mercury in commercial marine and freshwater fish that is 1.0 parts per million (ppm), and in mercury blues mp3 Canada the limit for the total of mercury content is 0.5 (ppm) [1,2].

Species with characteristically low levels of mercury mercury liquid include shrimp, tilapia, salmon, pollock, and catfish mercury outboard performance (FDA March 2004). The FDA characterizes shrimp, catfish, pollock, salmon, and canned light tuna as low-mercury seafood, although recent tests have indicated that up mercury space suit to 6 percent of canned light oroville mercury register tuna may contain high levels.[17]

The effects of consuming fish high in mercury is in dispute who discovered mercury with the University of Rochester's study of people in the Republic of the Seychelles. 1963 mercury comet While there is no doubt high level exposure to methyl mercury is definitely 1964 mercury comet toxic, low level exposure isn't.[18] A recent Harvard Medical School 49 mercury study of mothers and their infants suggests that the nutritional benefits of fish outweigh the effects 51 mercury of mercury.[19] In the berlin hotels mercury HMS study, each additional weekly serving of fish consumed by the ford lincoln mercury nissan of slidell mother during pregnancy was associated with an increase in infant cognition.

Release of mercury into healey ford lincoln mercury the environment

The environmental consideration of mercury use in a mercury boats particular product can sometimes be complicated. For instance mercury cougar1967 compact fluorescent light bulbs, which use a very small amount of mercury (in 2004 mercury digital cameras two-thirds of CFL lamps sold contained 5 mg Hg or less per mercury engines bulb, while 96 percent contained 10 mg or less), due to their far higher mercury itg efficiency over incandescent bulbs actually emit less mercury to mercury m100 logo the environment when they are powered using energy from a coal power plant.
Mercury use of compact fluorescent bulb mercury project, nasa vs. incandescent bulb when powered by electricity generated from coal.

The primary sources of mercury to the environment are fossil fuel burning (primarily coal) and mercury prop solid waste incineration (Nriagu & Pacyna, 1988). Power plants mercury radio installation in the U.S., according to mercury remanufactured trigger U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, are one of the main emitters of mercury — 48 tonnes a year

The United States Clean Air Act, passed in mercury super ten 1990, put mercury on a list of toxic pollutants which need mercury winged foot to be controlled to the greatest possible extent. Thus, certain industries that emit mercury into san jose mercury news online the environment must install maximum symptoms of mercury poisoning in humans achievable control technologies (MACT). However, a March 2005 EPA rule[20] took power plants testing tools mercury eds borland off the list of sources which must reduce mercury to the why is mercury chosen for use in thermometers maximum extent. Instead, a cap and trade rule was issued, with most of the 1966 mercury parklane reductions in mercury pollution from power plants beginning in the year 2018. States were also given 1993 mercury topaz until November, 2006 to impose stricter controls, and several states are doing so. The rule was being subjected 1995 mercury sable to legal challenges from several states in alexander ford lincoln mercury 2005.

Mercury and aluminium

Mercury readily combines with aluminium to form an amalgam when greenwood ford lincoln mercury the two pure metals come into contact. However, when the mercury astronauts amalgam is exposed to air, the aluminium oxidizes, leaving behind mercury. The mercury capsule oxide flakes away, exposing more mercury amalgam, which repeats the process. This process continues until mercury cougar parts the supply of amalgam is exhausted, and since it releases mercury county mutual insurance company mercury, a small amount of mercury can “eat through” a large mercury glass amount of aluminium over time, by progressively forming amalgam and relinquishing the aluminium as oxide.

Aluminium in air mercury home insurance is ordinarily protected by a molecule-thin layer of its own oxide (which is not porous to oxygen). mercury knives of italy Mercury coming into contact with this oxide does no mercury metal harm. However, if any elemental aluminium is exposed (even by a recent scratch), the mercury may combine with it, starting mercury outboard troubleshooting the process described above, and potentially damaging mercury solar system a large part of the aluminium before it finally ends (Ornitz 1998).

For this reason, restrictions are placed mercury thermometers on the use and handling of mercury in mercury trigger repair proximity with aluminium. In particular, mercury is not allowed aboard aircraft under most circumstances because of the risk of mercury villager fuel filter replacement it forming amalgam with mercury villager online repair manual exposed aluminium parts in the aircraft.

Reclamation of mercury mines

Due to minimal surface disruption, mercury mines lend mercury villager parts themselves to constructive re-use. For example, in 1976 the Santa Clara County, California purchased the historic Almaden Quicksilver Mine mercury wings and proceeded to create mercury zephyr a county park on the site, after conducting extensive safety and environmental analysis of the picture of a 1986 mercury cougar property.
