Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Chromium is a steel-gray, lustrous hard metal that is often used as an anti-corrosive and to provide rich, vibrant color in paints, dyes, and pigments. It is also used as a leather tanner and in the manufacture of magnetic tape. Known mainly for the shiny finish it imparts to metal, chromium is a surprisingly versatile element, which, in combination with other elements, has a wide range of uses. This book provides all the important bedrock information about chromium’s properties, while also telling the story of its discovery and describing the many uses to which it is put.
