For keen lexicographers apparently the Persian word in question Zarnikh was subsequently borrowed by the Greeks for their word arsenikon which means masculine or potent. Everything to the right of the line in the periodic table is a non-metal and everything to the left is a metal. These values were determined using several different methods. Gallium arsenide is an important semiconductor material, used in integrated circuits. Arsenic's symbol is As and its atomic number is 33. Poisoning was some times diagnosed on the basis of a victim's garlic breath.

Arsenic trioxide has been used in a variety of ways over the past 500 years, most commonly in the treatment of cancer, but in medications as diverse as Fowler’s solution in psoriasis. The higher the value, the larger risk there is to supply. Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, Haut-Rhin, France. In its metallic form it is bright, silver-grey and brittle. Arsenic in the stable metallic form consists of light-greyish lustrous crystals possessing the symmetry of the ditrigonal scalenohedral class (dihexagonal alternating) of the rhombohedral system. Physical properties. It is classified as a semimetal, because it possesses some properties of metals and some of nonmetals.

It is the most abundant arsenic-bearing mineral and the primary ore of arsenic metal. It is used as a feed additive in poultry and swine production, in particular in the U.S. to increase weight gain, improve feed efficiency, and to prevent disease. The reappearance of garlic is coincidental and the type of poisoning, acute deliberate poisoning versus unintentional long term poisoning by drinking water is very different. (Wikipedia, 2019).

These are found in the periodic table along a diagonal line from Boron at the top left to round about polonium at the bottom right. This describes both the native and artificial crystals, although the former are usually indistinct. The temperature at which the solid–liquid phase change occurs. Arsenic gets its name from a Persian word for the yellow pigment now known as orpiment. Political stability of top reserve holder. Arsenic, atomic number 33 lies in between phosphorus and antimony in group 15, the so called Nitrogen group of the periodic table. The arrangements of electrons above the last (closed shell) noble gas. It tarnishes in air, and when heated rapidly oxidises to arsenous oxide which has a garlic odour. The elemental solid primarily occurs in two modifications, though other allotropes are reported. Mention arsenic to anyone even a chemist, the first word that is likely to come to mind is poison, it is of course a deadly poison, but its compounds also found or have been found in insecticides, colouring agents, wood preservatives, in animal feed, as a treatment for syphilis, and treatments for cancer, as a treatment for psoriasis, in fireworks and as a semiconductor. They have very low density (5.727 g/cm 3). (1) Specific heat capacity is the amount of energy needed to change the temperature of a kilogram of a substance by 1 K. A measure of the stiffness of a substance. Members of the group including of course nitrogen, along with arsenic, phosphorous, antimony and bismuth are particularly stable in compounds because they tend to form double or triple covalent bonds. First ionisation energyThe minimum energy required to remove an electron from a neutral atom in its ground state. Each allotrope has different physical properties. It was also used in various agricultural insecticides and poisons. Johanngeorgenstadt, Marienberg, and Annaberg, Saxony; Wolfsberg and St. I hope you can join us. Arsenic levels in ground water are sometimes elevated as a result of erosion from local rocks.
