Iron-58 Information

Iron is a silvery malleable and ductile metallic transition element. It has 28 isotopes, 4 of them are natural stable ones, and it is the fourth most abundant element in the earth's crust. Iron is required by living organisms as a trace element (it is used in hemoglobin in humans). Quite reactive, iron oxidizes in moist air, displaces hydrogen from dilute acids and combines with nonmetallic elements.

Iron is used in steel and other alloys. This element is essential for humans. Iron is the chief constituent of hemoglobin which carries oxygen in blood vessels. Its oxides are used in magnetic tapes and disks.
