HAZARD SUMMARY * Thorium Dioxide can affect you when breathed in and may be absorbed through the skin. * Thorium Dioxide is a CARCINOGEN--HANDLE WITH EXTREME CAUTION. * Thorium Dioxide is broken down in the body into radioactive substances. * Thorium Dioxide may be contaminated with radioactive Thorium. This could contaminate work surfaces and
Thorium dioxide (ThO2), also called thorium(IV) oxide, is a crystalline solid, often white or yellow in color. Also known as thoria, it is produced mainly as a by-product of lanthanide and uranium production. Thorianite is the name of the mineralogical form of thorium dioxide. It is moderately rare and crystallizes in an isometric system. The melting point of thorium oxide is 3300 °C the highest of all known oxides. Only a few elements (including tungsten and carbon) and a few compounds (including tantalum carbide) have hi
Jun 01, 1955· Male Sprague-Dawley rats of the same age and weight were given inoculations intradermally or subcutaneously of an emulsion of Walker carcinoma 256. All animals of a series received the same initial dose of inoculum. Forty-eight hours later one-half the animals were given intravenous injections of Thorotrast into the tail vein. At 30 days the animals were sacrificed by decapitation, and a

Thorotrast (thorium dioxide) was used as a radiologic contrast agent between 1928 and 1950.It is an alpha emitter with a biologic half-life of 400 years. It accumulates in the reticuloendothelial cells in the liver and spleen and increases the
The metal may be extruded, rolled, forged, swaged, and spun, but drawing is difficult because of thorium’s low tensile strength.This and other physical properties such as melting and boiling points are greatly affected by small amounts of certain impurities, such as carbon and thorium dioxide. Thorium is added to magnesium and magnesium alloys to improve their high-temperature strength.
Thorium monoxide (thorium(II) oxide), is the binary oxide of thorium having stone formula ThO. The covalent bond in this diatomic molecule is highly polar.The effective electric between the two atoms has been calculated to be about 80 gigavolts per centimeter, one of
Thorium Oxide Powder (ThO2), also called thorium (IV) oxide, is a crystalline solid, often white or yellow in color. Also known as thoria, it is produced mainly as a by-product of lanthanide and uranium production. Thorianite is the name of the mineralogical form of thorium dioxide. It is moderately rare and crystallizes in an isometric system.
Thorium also has been widely used in lantern mantles for the brightness it imparts (though alternatives are replacing it), and in welding rods, which burn better with small amounts of added thorium. Until the 1950s, thorium dioxide was used as a contrast agent (called Thorotrast) in medical radiology.
Thorium fuel is a bit harder to prepare. Thorium dioxide melts at 550 degrees higher temperatures than traditional Uranium dioxide, so very high temperatures are required to produce high-quality solid fuel. Additionally, Th is quite inert, making it difficult to chemically process. This is irrelevant for fluid-fueled reactors discussed below.
Mar 03, 2011· Summary: Thorium is a naturally occurring, radioactive substance. In the environment, thorium exists in combination with other minerals, such as silica. Small amounts of thorium are present in all rocks, soil, water, plants, and animals. Soil contains an average of about 6 parts of thorium per million parts of soil (6 ppm).
Summary The solubility of thorium oxides of different crystallinity is investigated at 25°C by different experimental approaches. The dissolution of bulk crystalline ThO2(cr) is a very slow process and the Th(IV) concentrations measured after one year at pH 1-3 in 0.1 and 0.5M HCl-NaCl solutions do not represent equilibrium data. Coulometric titration of thorium nitrate solutions in the low
Thorium is a naturally occurring, radioactive substance. In the environment, thorium exists in combination with other minerals, such as silica. Small amounts of thorium are present in all rocks, soil, water, plants, and animals.Soil contains an average of about 6 parts of thorium per million parts of soil (6 ppm). More than 99% of natural thorium exists in the form of thorium-232.
Analytical microscopy was used to study the distribution and stone composition of thorium deposits in stone marrow and liver after injection of thorium dioxide and thorium nitrate. Thorotrast (thorium dioxide) was identified as being localized in stone marow macrophages of a patient who had undergone cerebral arteriography forty two years ago.Large thorotrast deposits were also present in
time of the Earth’s formation . Thorium has previously been used as a catalyst or in ceramics but has since shifted to use mainly as a power source since the discovery of its radioactivity. Thorium(IV) oxide, also known as thorium dioxide, is the main product extracted from monazite in this process and is a valuable nuclear fuel source.
Sep 01, 2003· Development of thorium-plutonium (Th-Pu) and thorium-uranium (Th-U233) mixed oxide fuels was initiated in 2001. This research included the development of indigenous equipment for the production of thorium dioxide powder and trials with uranium dioxide.

Each profile includes the following: (A) The examination, summary, and interpretation of available toxicologic information and or Use Thorium Dioxide.. 85 5-4. Lowest Limit of Detection Based
thorium sulfate in Reactor-100. Thorium is converted to an oxide through a reaction with ammonium hydroxide in Reactor-101 and precipitated as a final product. The basic environment in this reactor was also used to dissolve silicon dioxide, creating an efficient solid-liquid separation between these products. Silicon dioxide is then re-
CiteSeerX Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): Mast cells from the peritoneal cavity of the rat were obtained at various times following in situ injection of a colloidal thorium dioxide preparation (Thorotrast). They were prepared for electron microscopy by aldehyde fixation, osmium tetroxide postfixation, and embedding in Epon.
HAZARD SUMMARY * Thorium Nitrate emits radioactive particles which can be breathed in or swallowed, or can penetrate the skin. * Thorium Nitrate can irritate the skin causing a rash or burning feeling on contact. * Exposure to Thorium Nitrate can irritate the eyes, nose, and throat.
