Tin can be obtained from the mineral cassiterite and remains solid at room temperature. The boiling point of Tin is about 2875 K (2602 °C) while its melting point is about 505.08 K (231.93 °C).

Chemical Formula:

  • Sn

Synonym:

  • 7440-31-5

Molecular Weight:    

  • 118.71 g/mol

Industrial Uses

  • Tin plating
  • Specialised alloys
  • Optoelectronics
  • Soldering

Production Process

  • Production of Tin via Extraction.

Tin is extracted by roasting mineral cassiterite with carbon at nearly 2500 degrees Fahrenheit in a furnace. After this, it is treated in an electrostatic or magnetic furnace, which helps in the removal of impurities. Finally, the separation of any heavy metal impurities leads to the formation of Tin.
