Abstract: Antimony is an elementary metal mined mostly as antimony sulphide, and has two valencies, 3+ and 5+. Antimony in the trivalent form is used as grid alloy in storage batteries, cable sheaths in soldering flux and as pigment in paints. Modern use is especially based on the properties as a flame retardant and semi-conductor. Pentavalent antimony is still used as an anti-parasitic medication. Industrial exposure may give rise to irritation of the respiratory tract, and cause pneumoconiosis after lon... more
Antimon er et metallisk grunnstoff, som utvinnes mest i form av antimon sulfid. Det har to valenser, +3 og +5. Metallet brukes i blybatterier, kabelforinger, i loddefluks og som malingpigment. Moderne bruk baserer seg særlig på antimons flammehindrende og halvleder-egenskaper. Pentavalent antimon brukes som middel mot parasittsykdommer. Industriell eksponering kan gi irritasjon i luftveiene, som kan fre til en sideroselignende pneumokoniose etter langtids eksponering. Denne utviklingen fremmes a... more
