chemical formula: UO4nH2O
( powder )
Ammonium Peroxide (also known as Yellowcake) is a radioactive compound of the metal element Uranium. In industry, Yellowcake is not a specific compound. It is simply the concentrated chemical output of a Uranium mill regardless of its chemistry. These days, a variety of Uranium compounds are called Yellowcake but they can be green, black orange or yellow. Uranium Peroxide is mildly radioactive and primarily emits Alpha and Beta radiation. This is a product of natural Uranium - it is not depleted. Like most heavy metals, Uranium Peroxide is chemically toxic. Inhalation of any dust particles can be hazardous. Ideal for collectors of those experimenting with Uranium compounds. Comes as shown above, small vial packed in standard chemical bottle. Available in 1 or 10 grams (choose below).
Caution: Use normal laboratory safety precautions when working with Uranium Peroxide. Inhalation or ingestion of the Yellowcake dust particles may be harmful.
