Niobium and tantalum - USGS

Niobium and tantalum are transition metals that are almost always found together in nature because they have very similar physical and chemical properties. Their properties of hardness, conductivity, and resistance to corrosion largely determine their primary uses today. The leading use of niobium (about 75 percent) is in the production of high-strength steel alloys used in pipelines ...

Hydrometallurgical Process for Tantalum Recovery from ...

The problem is that niobium and tantalum have similar chemical characteristics, which makes refinement di cult. However, the tantalum used in capacitors is free of niobium. Hence, studying the recovery of tantalum from capacitors is not only beneficial for waste management, but it also avoids the disadvantages of the typical tantalum recovery ...

Jan 04, 2015  Results demonstrate that the main tantalum-niobium minerals include tantalite, columbite, tantalum-niobite, and microlite; these minerals are finely disseminated and nearly below 0.040 mm in size. The occurrence of niobium minerals is more complex than that of tantalum minerals; thus, a lower recovery for niobium than tantalum may be expected.
