  • Thallium is a chemical element with the symbol Tl and atomic number 81.
  • Thallium occurs in crooksite, lorandite, and hutchinsonite.
  • In its pure form, thallium is odorless and tasteless.
  • Thallium is very soft and melts easily.
  •  It is soft enough to cut with an ordinary knife and will leave a mark on paper if rubbed across it.
  • The thallium-based and mercury-based superconducting oxides are excellent candidates because of their high transition temperature reaching to 130 K and unique features in their growth morphology.

  • It is also present in pyrites and is recovered from the roasting of this ore in connection with the production of sulfuric acid.

  • Thallium is a byproduct metal recovered in some countries from flue dusts and residues collected in the smelting of copper, zinc, and lead ores.
  • Thallium is obtained as a by-product of the recovery of lead and zinc.
  • Gases from the recovery process are captured. They are then treated to obtain the pure metal.
  • Thallium is recovered as a byproduct from the flue dust and residues generated during the roasting and smelting steps in the processing of copper, lead, zinc, and other sulfide ores.
  • Approximately 60-70% of thallium production is used in the electronics industry, and the rest is used in the pharmaceutical industry and in glass manufacturing.
  • Thallium is highly toxic and is used in rat poisons and insecticides, and its use has been cut back or eliminated in many countries.
  • Thallium is used in the electrodes in dissolved oxygen analyzers.
  • Thallium has been used in treating ringworm and other skin infections
  •   its use has been limited because of the narrow margin between toxicity and therapeutic benefits.
  • Thallium has been used, with sulfur or selenium and arsenic, to produce low melting glasses which becomes fluid between 125 and 150 C.
  • Thallium amalgam is used in thermometers for low temperature, because it freezes at -58 °C.
  • World resources of thallium contained in zinc resources total about 17 million kilograms; most are located in Canada, Europe, and the United States.
  • Higher internal demand for many metals, including thallium, has prompted China to begin importing greater quantities of thallium.
  • The recent introduction of thallium-20i /Tc-99m pertechnetate subtraction scintigraphy for imaging parathyroid adenomashas rekindled interest in parathyroid scintigraphy.

  • Some reports have described both positive and negative thallium-201 accumulation in thymic rebound.

  • Although more experience with similar cases is necessary, it is likely that thallium-201 also tends to accumulate in thymic rebound as well as gallium.
