Antimony Sb

While antimony compounds used to be used for a variety of medical applications, today we encounter them in things as diverse as plastic housings, upholstered furniture, DVDs, matches and brake pads. And as a component of super acids, antimony (V) fluoride (SbF5) enables research into the fascinating chemistry of carbenium and carbonium ions.

Here is a video about antimony from the Periodic Videos series.

You can also listen to antimony for two and a half minutes on the Deutschlandfunk Kultur podcast.

Nitrogen group

The nitrogen group includes the elements nitrogen, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony, bismuth and the artificially produced radioactive moscovium. While nitrogen is a gaseous substance, phosphorus already occurs in several solid modifications. Arsenic is a semi-metal, while antimony and bismuth are metallic.
