118Sn Information

Tin is a silvery malleable metallic element belonging to group 14 of the periodic table. 41 isotopes of tin are known, 10 of them are stable and naturally occurring. This element is chemically reactive. Tin combines directly with chlorine and oxygen and displaces hydrogen from dilute acids.

Tin is used as a coating for steel cans since it is nontoxic and noncorrosive. Also it is used in solder (33%Sn:67%Pb), bronze (20%Sn:80%Cu), and pewter. Stannous fluoride (SnF2), a compound of tin and fluorine is used in some toothpaste.
