Good evening everyone!, greetings from Spain!.
So we're doing this "project", and I've chosen to do something on material chemistry, specifically in alloys, first I decided on a Bismuth-Tin alloy because of its low melting point since we actually have to use the equipment we have in our lab to conduct experiments and test the properties or otherwise make the "things" we've chosen, the problem is that I haven't found any applications for this alloy neither can I find any information about it on the interwebs. I'd like to do a comparison of the microstructure in the different phases of this eutectic alloy, do a complexometric titration/atomic absorption spectroscopy to determine the concentration of each component, we have an IR and UV/Vis too but I don't think I can do much with those. I would like to know your opinion on this idea.
I've found other interesting subjects, such as Hydrogen storing alloys (LaNi5 for example), memory alloys, lithium coating for submersible vehicles, Perovskite and not much more.
I would immensely appreciate if you could give me some topics or suggestions in the field of crystallography (eutectic alloys, minerals...), the important thing is that its has to be feasible with the equipment I mentioned being either for the making of it or comparison of properties, as well as an interesting and feasible application.
Thank you very much for your attention.
