Iron oxide is a compound with the formula Fe2O3. It is one of three iron oxides. The others are the rare ferrous oxide (of FeO) and triiron oxide (of Fe3O4) which occurs naturally as magnetite. Iron oxide is sometimes called hematite. It is the most important source of iron used in steelmaking. It is also 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 an undefined substance known as hydrated ferr oxide. Fe2O3 is available in a variety of crystal forms. The main iron oxides of a and G configurations have an octahedral six-coordinate structure. What is iron oxide pigment?
Iron oxide pigments refers to four main types of color pigments made from iron oxides. These are iron oxide yellow, black and brown. Iron oxide is the predominant pigment (accounting for about 50% of all iron oxides). 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, paints, and plastics. This is because it has high synthetic purity, a uniform particle size and wide chromatogram. Electronics, tobacco, medicine, ceramics, ink, magnetic materials, papermaking, and other fields.

Applications and performance of iron oxide
1. Iron and Steel Industry: Iron oxide’s main application is in the steel and iron industry.
2. Surface polishing – extremely fine iron dioxide powder is known as “jeweler’s Rouge”, “red rouge”, and rouge. It has long been used to finish polishing metal jewelry, lenses, and other items. 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 cause a small amount of contamination to the gold when polishing it. This can have an effect on the final product’s appearance. Rouge comes in powders and pastes as well as polishing cloths and solid sticks. 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 = yellow, b= red) in different hydrates.
3. Iron oxide is used as pigment. The names of the pigments are “Iron Oxide Brown 6”, “Iron Oxide Brown 7,” and “Iron Oxide Brown 101”. 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 batteries was set at US$132-245/MWh by a French financial advisor in their industry standard annual report. Iron air batteries, at one-tenth the cost, will be the cheapest energy storage at a distance.
This battery is designed to be used for several days continuously. The battery will create a renewable, safe and reliable power grid that can run throughout the entire year.
