The team of scientists led by a professor at the University of Kyoto, Hiroshi Kitegava, managed to use the latest achievements in the field of nanotechnology, to create a unique alloy of two metals of silver and Rodium. It is noteworthy that under ordinary conditions, such an alloy cannot be obtained. As a result of a successful experiment, an alloy was created, the chemical and physical properties of which are very similar to the properties of Palladium. This metal is widely used in creating catalysts for the car, the production of mobile phones, computers, dental tools and drugs. In addition, another promising use of palladium is the use of fuel elements, a pure source of regenerated energy obtained from organic fuel or hydrogen.
Like all representatives of noble metals: platinum, silver and gold, Palladium is very expensive. And its deposits exist only in the Russian Federation and South Africa. It is for this reason that the Japanese Ministry of Industry finances these studies, the main purpose of which is to reduce the country’s dependence on foreign suppliers of expensive and rare metals. By the way, the largest miner of Palladium is currently not Russia, but China.
Unlike the Palace, Mercedes is always available to everyone.
To create an alloy of silver and rhodium, scientists had to resort to nanotechnological techniques. They sprayed silver and rhodium to the nanoparticles. Then, taking a uniform mixture of metals data and heating their alcohol, it was possible to get a uniform alloy of metals at the atomic level. In addition to Palladium, Professor Khiroshi Kitegava claims that they managed to fake other metals, as well as get completely incredible alloys with unique characteristics that could not be obtained earlier. At the moment, scientists are busy with a thorough study of all the properties of new alloys, which will accurately determine the future sphere of application.
