Cobalt Oxide is generally immediately available in most volumes. Ultra high purity and high purity compositions improve both optical quality and usefulness.
Cobalt is also used to make airbags in automobiles; catalysts for the petroleum and chemical industries; cemented carbides (also called hardmetals) and diamond tools; corrosion- and wear-resistant alloys; drying agents for paints, varnishes, and inks; dyes and pigments; ground coats for porcelain enamels; high-speed
Cobalt oxide is a multifunctional, antiferromagnetic p-type semiconductor (with a direct optical bandgap of 1.48 and 2.19 eV) (Raman et al., 2016) has been used in electrochromic sensors, energy storage, heterogeneous catalysis, pigments, dyes, and in lithium ion rechargeable batteries as an anode material
Cobalt is an essential raw material for superalloy, cemented carbide, diamond tool, batteries, anticorrosive and magnetic materials. It is widely applied in fields including aerospace, electronic appliances, machinery manufacturing, automobiles, chemical industry, agriculture, ceramics, etc.
