Indium: atomic number 49

How to find out about Induim

I am trying to find out how pure the half bar of Indium that I have is. The only thing that I know about it is that it came from the Indium Corp of America. It weighs any where from 2lbs to 3lbs I would say closer to 3 but not sure. If anyone could help me that would be great'

Indium as a mineral supplement

I came across this web site while doing research on the use of Indium as a mineral supplement. I found an article that dismissed its nutrient value. There were also several comments that supported that thesis. I, however, am not too sure of the accuracy of these comments. While it is true that there has been little study of the possible health benefits form taking Indium, I believe that there may be many health benefits. And, I doubt that taking Indium in the recommend doses and manner is harmful.

error in units

The units of resistivity don't come out right.

10^-8 Ohm * m
m Ohm * cm

the 'm' should be a 'mu', but unfortunately they both look the same in the latin alphabet.
