The lithium osmium oxide discovered at OSU shows no evidence for magnetic order even when frozen to nearly absolute zero, which suggests an underlying quantum spin liquid state is possible for the compound, he said.
However, not only do gold and mercury need two different sample preparations, there will be additional issues when microwaving and testing for osmium as nitric acid is needed in order to oxidize and digest the sample.
Osmium is a chemical element that is represented using the symbol Os.
Impact reports its Red Hill assays as 7 PGMs (combining platinum, palladium, gold, osmium, iridium, rhodium, and ruthenium), copper and nickel.
However, the high cost and toxicity of osmium are a serious concern and many efforts have been devoted to overcome the issue including the development of heterogeneous catalyst ligand to trap the osmium [19, 20].
"Comets travel much faster than asteroids, so they have more energy on impact, which in combination with their being partially ice means they are not contributing as much iridium or osmium," he added.

Just 3 years ago, measurements of the rarely used element osmium stunned researchers by suggesting that it was stronger than diamond, having a bulk modulus of 462 GPa (SN: 4/6/02, p.
The occurrences are found to be 1.5 billion years younger than other deposits around the world with higher values of the rare osmium and iridium found in the bearing layer.

MI5 has labelled the osmium tetroxide weapon we have been supposedly threatened with as a "dirty bomb".
The explosives would have released deadly chemical agent osmium tetroxide, which attacks the lungs and suffocates victims in seconds.
