Definitions for "Beryllium"
A metallic element found in the beryl. See Glucinum.
(Be) Be; glucinium. Element 4, atomic weight 9.0122, an extremely toxic metal used as a neutron source and in phosphors.
CAS Number: 7440-41-7. Beryllium is a hard, grayish metal naturally found in mineral rocks, coal, soil, and volcanic dust. Beryllium compounds are commercially mined, and the beryllium is purified for use in nuclear weapons and reactors, aircraft and space vehicle structures, instruments, x-ray machines, and mirrors. Beryllium ores are used to make speciality ceramics for electrical and high-technology applications. Beryllium alloys are used in automobiles, computers, sports equipment (golf clubs and bicycle frames), and dental bridges. Chemical formula = Be. Molecular weight = 9.01 g/mol. Learn More...
