Number 50 on the "periodic table" of elements
Tests the presence of ions of tin to a high degree of accuracy to
detect contamination in the body and on a wide range of materials in your environment
Tin is one of the earliest metals known and used. About 35 countries mine tin throughout the world. Nearly every continent
has an important tin-mining country. Tin is a relatively scarce element with an abundance in the earth's crust of about
2 parts per million (ppm), compared with 94 ppm for zinc, 63 ppm for copper, and 12 ppm for lead. Most of the world's tin
is produced from placer deposits; at least one-half comes from Southeast Asia. The only mineral of commercial importance as
a source of tin is cassiterite (SnO2), although small quantities of tin are recovered from complex sulfides such as stanite,
cylindrite, frankeite, canfieldite, and teallite.
Most tin is used as a protective coating or as an alloy with other metals such as lead or zinc. Tin is used in coatings for
steel containers, in solders for joining pipes or electrical/electronic circuits, in bearing alloys, in glass-making, and in
a wide range of tin chemical applications. Secondary, or scrap, tin is an important source of the tin supply.
Tin resists distilled, sea, and soft tap water, but is attacked by strong acids, alkalis, and acid salts. Oxygen in solution
accelerates the attack. When heated in air, tin forms SnO2M, which is a feeble acid, forming stannate salts with
basic oxies. The most important salt is the chloride which is used as a reducing agent and as a mordant in calico printing.
It is, or was, used to plate steel, making "tin cans".
