Titanium is a highly corrosion-resistant metal with great tensile strength. It is ninth in abundance for elements in the earth's crust. It has a relatively low density (about 60% that of iron). It is also the tenth most commonly occurring element in the Earth's crust. That all means that titanium should be a really important metal for all sorts of engineering applications. In fact, it is very expensive and only used for rather specialized purposes.
The chemical element barium is a heavy, soft, silvery-white metal that, like the element chlorine, always occurs combined in nature. Due to their reactivity, barium and chlorine form compounds naturally. The most common form of barium in nature is the salt barium sulfate, BaSO4, also known as the mineral barite. It is also the chief ore of barium. Barium chloride, another barium salt, can be manufactured by reacting barium sulfate with hydrochloric acid, HCl.
Upon exposure to chloroacetic acid, immediate decontamination should be commenced by rinsing the affected area with water or bicarbonate solution in order to neutralize the acid and prevent further skin absorption.
Allyl bromide (3-bromopropene) is an organic halide. Allyl bromide is an alkylating agent used in synthesis of polymers, pharmaceuticals, allyls and other organic compounds. Physically, allyl bromide is a clear liquid with an intense, acrid, and persistent smell. In addition, allylzinc bromide may be produced by treating this compound with elemental zinc.
