  4. What form of iron (III) oxide is Product 544884?

    Both the alpha-form and gamma-form are present in the mineral form naturally. This nanopowder is expected to be comprised of primarily the gamma-form, also known as maghemite.

  5. What is the purity of Iron(III) oxide, Product 544884?

    The purity of this product is not specifically stated on the certificate of analysis. However, an estimated purity can be determined based on the iron content. One mole of iron (III) oxide contains 2 moles (or 111.694g) of iron. The theoretical amount of iron present is approximately 69.94%. Purity can only be measured for a particular lot, which can be calculated based on the iron content determined for that lot. The ratio of the experimental content and the theoretical content, expressed as a percentage will be the purity of the particular lot. For example, an experimental result of 68.6% iron corresponds to a purity of 98.1%.
