Osmium Market: Overview
Osmium is obtained through extraction of platinum metal from its ores. It is found as an alloy with iridium. It is bluish grey in color and is one of the densest elements found in nature. Symbolically it is represented as Os and has atomic number 76. Physically, osmium is hard, brittle, and lustrous in nature. Its luster is retained even at high temperatures. Osmium is toxic in nature and undergoes a chemical reaction to form osmium tetroxide when exposed to air. Owing to the toxicity of osmium, there are numerous regulations on the use of osmium. Osmium is used to make alloys since it induces properties such as hardness and corrosion resistance into the alloy.
