The previous article, Overview of the Refractory Metal Rhenium, introduces the discovery history of rhenium, physical and chemical properties, and magical rhenium effects. People have tried their best and they only have about 50 tons of rhenium a year. What are they used for? Why is there no gasoline without rhenium? The video below will answer you.
Rhenium has a highly selective catalytic function for many chemical reactions, so it is mainly used as a catalyst for the petroleum industry to synthesize high-octane gasoline. The world’s rhenium consumption in this area used to account for more than 60% of total consumption. The United States and Germany have also acquired patented technology for the manufacture of rhenium filters to purify automobile exhaust.
If you want to know more about rhenium, you can visit Advanced Refractory Metals (ARM) for more information, which supplies people with high-quality rhenium products all over the world, including rhenium powder, rhenium rod, rhenium wire, etc.
