Iron oxide is a compound with the formula Fe2O3. It is one of three iron oxides. The others are the rare ferrous tetroxide and triiron oxide (both Fe3O4) which occur naturally as magnetite. Iron oxide is sometimes called hematite. Iron oxide is the most important source of iron used in steelmaking. It is susceptible to acidic corrosion. Iron oxide, also known as rust, is a common term. It is not always a problem because rust can have several similar characteristics. To chemists rust is a vague substance known as hydrated ferr oxide. Fe2O3 is available in many crystal forms. The main iron oxides of a and G configurations have an octahedral six-coordinate structure. What is iron oxide pigment?
Iron oxides pigments refers to four main types of color pigments. These are iron oxides red, yellow, black and brown. Iron oxide is the predominant pigment (approximately 50%). The category of iron pigments also includes mica ironoxide used as anti-rust pigment, magnetic ironoxide used as a recording material and magnetic ironoxide. Iron oxide is a large inorganic colour pigment, second only to titanium dioxide.
Synthetic iron oxide is a pigment that accounts for more than 70% of the iron oxides used. Synthetic Iron Oxide is widely used for building materials, coatings and plastics. This is because it has high synthetic purity, a uniform particle size and wide chromatogram. Electronics, tobacco, medicine, rubber, ceramics, ink, magnetic materials, papermaking, and other fields.

Applications and performance of iron oxide
1. Iron and Steel Industry: The iron oxide is used primarily as a material for the iron and steel sector.
2. Surface polishing – extremely fine iron dioxide powder is known as “jeweler’s rouge”, “red Rouge”, or simply “rouge”. It is used to polish lenses and metal jewelry. Although iron oxide’s cutting speed is slower than that of some polishing agents used today (such as cerium dioxide), it is still employed in the optical industry and jewelry because it produces excellent finishes. Rouge will have an effect on the final product’s appearance when used to polish the gold. Rouge comes in the form or powders, pastes and polishing cloths. It can also be sold as solid sticks with wax or grease binding agents. Many other polishing products are referred to by the term “Rouge” even though they don’t contain iron oxide. Jewelers use ultrasonic cleansing to remove rouge residue from jewelry. For leather shaving, “scraping” compounds are used to achieve sharp edges for knives, hair straightening razers, or other edge tools.
Different colors of iron oxide (a = red and b = Yellow) in different hydrates.
3. Iron oxide can be used in cosmetics as a dye. Pigment Brown 6 and Pigment Red 101 have been approved as cosmetics by the US Food and Drug Administration. For dental composites, titanium dioxide and iron oxide are combined as a pigment.
The world’s cheapest energy-storage device—iron-air batteries
Iron-air batteries that can be recharged at home are a cost-effective alternative to traditional power plants, and they only cost a fraction of what lithium-ion batteries do. Energy transition is dependent on finding ways to consolidate renewable energies. Long-term, cheap and safe batteries that store energy can be the key to the energy transition. This is because they are able to solve the variable nature of solar and wind energy.
The average storage cost of large lithium-ion cells was set at US$132-245/MWh by a French financial advisor in their industry standard annual report. Iron-air battery storage, at one tenth that price, will be the most affordable type of energy storage at a distance.
The personnel responsible for developing this battery stated: “This battery will be able to provide reliable, safe, and 100% renewable power throughout the entire year.”
