Rhenium: uses

The following uses for rhenium are gathered from a number of sources as well as from anecdotal comments. I would be delighted to receive corrections as well as additional referenced uses.

  • additive to tungsten and molybdenum-based alloys to impart useful properties
  • filaments for mass spectrographs and ion gauges
  • rhenium-molybdenum alloys superconduct at 10K
  • electrical contact material, as it has good wear resistance and withstands arc corrosion
  • thermocouples made of Re-W are used for measuring temperatures up to 2200°C
  • rhenium wire is used in flash lamps for photography
  • rhenium catalysts are exceptionally resistant to poisoning from nitrogen, sulphur, and phosphorus, and are used for hydrogenation of fine chemicals, hydrocracking, reforming, and the disproportionation of alkenes
