NIOBIUM



Niobium's main use is in alloys where it is used to produce arc-welding rods and 


corrosion-resistant steel. Other applications include its use in superconducting 


materials, electronics, optics, numismatics and jewelry. Niobium is the basis for 


various barium titanate compositions used as dielectric coatings in 


telecommunications and small advanced electronics, such as cell phones, pagers 


and laptop computers.  High Purity (99.999%) Niobium Oxide (Nb2O5) 


PowderNiobium has medical research applications as well. Niobium is available as 


metal and compounds with purities from 99% to 99.999% (ACS grade to ultra-high 


purity). High Purity (99.999%) Niobium (Nb) Sputtering TargetElemental or metallic 


forms include pellets, rod, wire and granules for evaporation source material 


purposes. Niobium nanoparticles and nanopowders are also available. Niobium 


oxides are available in powder and dense pellet form for such uses as optical 


coating and thin film applications. Oxides tend to be insoluble. Niobium fluorides 


are another insoluble form for uses in which oxygen is undesirable such as 


metallurgy, chemical and physical vapor deposition and in some optical coatings. 


Niobium is also available in soluble forms including chlorides, nitrates and 


acetates. These compounds can be manufactured as solutions at specified 


stoichiometries.
