The element rubidium (Rb) is a soft, silvery metal of the alkali group. It has the highest melting point of all alkali metals. Its name, derived from the Latin for deep red, reflects its color and emission spectrum. In nature, it exists in two isotopes: 72% is stable 85Rb and 28% is the radioactive 87Rb.
rubidium phosphate is an inorganic compound with the formula RbPO4. It crystallizes in tetragonal space groups and has high thermal stability. It has been used in atomic clocks, as well as for optical applications and as a radiation detector.
Phosphorus is an essential nutrient in all living organisms, occurring naturally as free phosphoe anions or bound to organic molecules as organophosphates. The addition and removal of phosphate groups, known as phosphorylation and dephosphorylation, are critical biochemical processes. Phosphorus is found in phosphate minerals, such as hydroxyapatite and fluoroapatite, and in phosphate rock. It is also present in a number of plants as phosphorus salts and in animal bones, where it forms the hard dentine and enamel of teeth.
Phosphate is soluble in water at standard temperature and pressure. The sodium, potassium, rubidium, and caesium phosphates, as well as the ammonium, calcium, and ammonium dihydrogen phosphates are water-soluble. Other phosphates are not soluble in water or are only slightly soluble at normal conditions. Many phosphates are volatile, which can lead to fire hazards and explosions.
