Today, in developed countries, the percentage of rubidium used in high-tech areas gets to 80%, and the proportion of rubidium used in traditional areas is 20%. Rubidium is an essential basic material for the manufacture of digital gadgets (photomultiplier tubes, photocells), spectrophotometers, automatic control, spectrometry, color films, shade television, radar, lasers, glass, ceramics, digital clocks, and so on; precede modern technology, Ion thrusters as well as thermal ion power converters call for a large quantity of rubidium; rubidium hydroxides as well as borides can be utilized as high-energy strong fuels; contaminated rubidium can be made use of to identify the age of minerals; on top of that, rubidium compounds are made use of in the pharmaceutical and also paper markets; rubidium can also As a getter for vacuum cleaner systems. Rubidium is an extremely energetic unusual antacids steel with a content of 0.028% in the planet’s crust. It is extremely dispersed and has no separate mineral deposits. It mainly occurs in lepidolite [KRbLi(OH, F)Al2Si3O10], carnallite [KCl· MgCl2·6H2O] and other solid ores and salt lake brine. 55% of my country’s rubidium resources are stored in lepidolite. Jiangxi Yichun, Hunan, Hubei, Henan, Guangdong and Sichuan are the main enrichment places for my country’s rubidium resources. The salt lake brines and underground brines in Qinghai, Tibet Plateau and other places are also very rich in rubidium. However, because the chemical properties of rubidium are similar to those of other coexisting metal ions, industrial separation is difficult, which limits the full utilization of rubidium resources. yield is lower.
