A trip to the Canaries to find tellurium - The Periodic Elements NFT [GIVEAWAY]

A trip to the Canaries to find tellurium - The Periodic Elements NFT [GIVEAWAY]

Tellurium is the chemical element with atomic number 52 and its symbol is Te.

Tellurium is a relatively rare element that belongs to the same group as oxygen, sulfur, selenium and polonium, formerly known as the chalcogen group.

In its crystalline state, tellurium has a silvery-white metallic appearance. It is a brittle nonmetal which is easily pulverized.
Chemically related to selenium and sulfur, its electrical conductivity increases significantly when it is exposed to light. Tellurium burns with a greenish-blue flame converting to its dioxide.

Tellurium (from the Latin tellus, which means "Earth") was discovered in 1782 by Franz-Joseph Müller von Reichenstein, in Sibiu in Romania. In 1798 it was baptized with its present name by Martin Heinrich Klaproth, who was the first to isolate it.

The 1960s saw growth both in the thermoelectric applications of tellurium and in the processing of steel, which has become its main use. Other Uses:

  • It is added to cast iron to control its cooling.
  • It is used in ceramics.
  • Bismuth telluride is used in thermoelectric devices.

A few years ago (2017) British researchers discovered the largest tellurium deposit in the world in the Canary Islands. Thanks to tellurium, the installation of solar panels and the connection of mobile phones will profoundly change and thanks to this discovery, the change could receive a strong boost.

The Periodic Table NFT project

The Periodic Table NFT project aims to raise awareness of chemical elements in a modern key, basing the approach on blockchain and Non Fungible Token.
Day after day it will be possible to know the single elements that make up the table, to collect curiosities about each of them and about the table in general.
We are working to be able to learn, in a playful way, also what happens by combining the various elements.
The whole project is based on the collection of NFTs that can be bought on the site https://wax.atomichub.io/market?collection_name=periodicelem&order=desc&sort=created&symbol=WAX or by participating in simple giveaways published on publish0x.

Periodic Table Of Elements - NFT
Periodic Table Of Elements - NFT

The periodic table, also known as the periodic table of elements, is a tabular display of the chemical elements, which are arranged by atomic number, electron configuration, and recurring chemical properties. Each of us has a good memory of the school period. The periodic table of the elements was certainly a part of our journey. The time has come to retrace each element and collect the most exciting ones.
