References of niobium
Title: Niobium
CAS Registry Number: 7440-03-1
Synonyms: Columbium
Literature References: Nb; at. wt 92.90638; at. no. 41; valence 2, 3, 4, 5; usually pentavalent. Group VB (5). One naturally occurring isotope: 93Nb; artificial, radioactive isotopes: 88-92; 94-101. Approximately as abundant as nickel. Occurs in nature together with tantalum in the minerals columbite [(Fe,Mn)(Nb,Ta)2O6], pyrochlore (NaCaNb2O6F) and tantalite [(Fe,Mn)(Ta,Nb)2O6]. Discovered by Hatchett in 1801, isolated by Blomstrand in 1866, named after Niobe, daughter of Tantalos. Extracted from columbite which is mined largely in Nigeria and Zaire. Less than 10% of niobium-bearing ores come from the US, Canada, and Norway. Reviews of niobium and its compds: Technology of Columbium (Niobium) B. W. Gonser, E. M. Sherwood, Eds.
