What are the chemical element/elements found in your world?

How rare is it? What is the use of it in technological development? Any other details?

for example:

Marvel have Vibranium and Adamantium. Something like that.

Please help a chemical engineer and element enthusiast source some Uranium!

I live in Queensland Australia and know that Queensland (and Australia) mines and exports a lot of uranium.

Apparently uranium’s Metals spot price is ~$60/Kg (AUD) but I’m having trouble sourcing anything except the ore (pitchblende) for less than $3/g.

I study chemical engineering but I’m also a hobbyist crystal grower and element collector.

USE 1:

I’d love to have a somewhat large piece of uranium metal (Roughly 12cm^3) for my WIP periodic table display. (Sample will be stored inside thick leaded glass to reduce radiation Exposure (so I can compensate and have a larger sample without increasing exposure risk).

Use 2:

As part of chemical engineering I would love to explore the uses and mechanical/aesthetic properties of uranium when alloying it with other metals and substances. Because of its radioactivity and public fear surrounding uranium, it seems to have comparatively less alloying data compared to other more common metals.

Use 3: Crystal growing with uranium salts. By dissolving Uranium in various acids and solvents, I could synthesise all kinds of unique uranium salts and hopefully create some stunning crystals from them! On top of this making uranium glass myself would be fun to do! If I manage to source some, I’d love to share any neat finds I create!

Alas, I have been struggling to find any decent quality of uranium metal or even uranium ore (if it’s significantly cheaper, I can smelt it or react it into its metallic form using a displacement reaction). It’s annoying because I have heard of others buying large amounts for reasonable prices. If anybody knows good sources to obtain uranium (preferably a bulk amount like a few Kg but anything, even a few grams for cheap is better at this point!), I would greatly appreciate the help!

We come together in ways that we do not understand. We’re composed of elements, chemicals, and atoms, and yet we speak and call ourselves by name.

We organize about our inner stuff the outer stuff that coagulates into flesh and bone. Our identities or personalities spring from sources we do not know. β€œPerhaps what we are has always waited, hidden in the possibilities of creation, dispersed and unknowing β€” in the rain and wind that swept across Europe in the thirteenth century β€” in the heaving mountain ranges β€” in the clouds that rushed through the skies of other times and places. As dust particles, we may have blown past Greek doorways. We may have been sparked on and off into consciousness and unconsciousness a million times, touched by desire, by yearnings toward creativity and perfection we barely understood. β€œAnd so there may be others now (like Seth), also without images, but knowing β€” others who have been what we are and more β€” others who remember what we have forgotten. They may have discovered through some acceleration of consciousness other forms of being, or dimensions of reality of which we are also part. β€œSo we give them names who are nameless, as basically we are nameless. And we listen, but usually we try to squeeze their messages into concepts that we can understand, cloaking them in worn stereotyped images. Yet they are all about us, in the wind and trees, formed and unformed, more alive in many ways perhaps than we are β€” the speakers. Through these voices, these intuitions, these flashes of insights and messages, the universe speaks to us, to each of us personally. You are being addressed, and so am I. Learn to hear your own messages, not to distort what you hear or translate it into old alphabets. β€œIn class (and in life, generally,) I think we are responding to such messages, sometimes acting them out with almost childlike wisdom, forming them into dramas that are original and individualistic β€” dramas that arouse within us meanings that cannot be put into words. β€œThis may be the kind of play in which the β€˜gods’ indulge, from which creations grow, sprawling out in all directions. We may be responding to the gods in ourselves β€” those inner sparks of knowing that defy our own three-dimensional knowledge. β€œSeth may be leading us out of our usual limitations, into another realm that is ours by right β€” elemental whether we are in flesh or out of it. He may be the voice of our combined selves, saying, β€˜While you are conscious bodies, remember what it was like and will be like to be bodiless, to be freewheeling energy without a name but with a voice that does not need tongue, with a creativ

Part 1| Next

I had a presidential suite all to myself. They treated me like royalty. Room service, food of my choosing, and a ginormous swimming pool that would make any kid jealous. Quite the opposite of what I was used to in a small town from the Midwest. Every night Ray and Saul took me to get ice cream somewhere in Nevada off base. I remember cruising along in the black Buick convertible, taking in the speeding winds, it was the only time when I felt truly free.

The night before, the day, we had a discussion at the ice cream parlor. A few other families were there, so we sat in the car, enjoying our cones away from their ears.

"Bradley, you're a real bright kid. I take it you understand what's being asked of you?" Ray started, he was shorter, had perfect hair and a mustache. He was in the driver seat, and he always drove.

I licked a chunk of chocolate soft serve and looked down at the ground. "Yeah."

"To the full extent?"

"Yes," I muttered.

"We've gotten to know you really well, Bradley. In fact, to be honest, we don't like you in this situation," Saul said, he was taller, clean shaven, and blonde haired. "Because we know you don't like it."

I nodded after a moment of hesitation.

"We have a plan, it's a risk, but we don't want you to carry such a burden so young in life," Ray said, turning to face me. "Don't forget, Saul and I used to be your age, we remember what it's like. You deserve a real childhood, with your friends and your real parents. This… this isn't the life for you. Unless you really want to go through with this?"

I shook my head, and we devised a plan.

***

The day came. All the preparation culminated into a storm of scientists and government employees shepherding me into a white room with glass panes surrounding me at the top.

Dr. Faulkner was the head scientist that communicated with me. I stood at the center of the white room, I was instructed to bend my element and thrust the creation at a target, which was a steel sphere that stood up from the ground like a diner stool.

"Okay, Bradley. Whenever you're ready," Dr. Faulkner said through a microphone, and the speakers in the room filled with his voice.

I gazed up at the men in the glass panes above me, taking a deep breath, and a giant gulp. My hands and arms quaked.

Papers on Chemical Kinetics using the Finite Element Method

Hello, I am looking for expert advice from someone who's an expert in chemical kinetics (primarily focusing on rates of the reactions). My expertise is in Continuum Mechanics and the Finite Element Method. I wanted to expand my horizons a bit and after taking a course on engines that talked about a bit rates of chemical reactions, I got curious about the subject. After picking up a book on Chemical Kinetics (the one by Paul L Houston), I saw that early on the techniques to solve simpler problems was just to consider either steady state solutions or do some equation manipulation to make it work. I couldn't really find papers that directly tackled the differential equations besides a few from the 90s and those were primarily from industry not universities that used some cooked up version of the Finite Element method requiring multiple assumptions and simplifications.

Any links, advice or conversation is appreciated.
