this page really should be in kelvin not celsius. for standarisation with the rest of wikipedia. 06:53, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Standardising would be a pretty big task, there's quite a few articles using celsius as the primary (and a few even using fahrenheit I think). But by all means give it a shot, you have my support. --fvw* 07:50, 2004 Nov 21 (UTC)

For updating this page I invite to use boiling points of the elements (data page) as a reference. Femto 14:57, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)

like that? (please crosscheck for errors, as this was done half-automatically). 16:42, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Tungsten and Rhenium[edit]

According to Emsley (Emsley, John (1991). The Elements ((Second Edition) ed.). Oxford University Press. ISBN 019855818X. ) the boiling point of Tungsten is 5960K and the boiling point of Rhenium is 5900K. Tungsten is usually understood to be the element with the highest boiling point, but according to the data given in the entry (which I will change to Emsley's values) Rhenium is shown to have a higher boiling point -- and is listed out-of-order. --Ben Best 08:22, 6 December 2006 (UTC)

Gaps and out-of-order[edit]

I have filled in all of the data gaps that I saw as well. Lots of the elements are not correctly ordered by boiling point. I may fix this later, but I haven't got time to do so now. --Ben Best 09:12, 6 December 2006 (UTC)


Isn't Thallium a Poor Metal, not an Actinide.

  • Fixed.


somebody check this but I think the boiling point is way wrong, also on the wikipedia silicon page citation to check: (NOT MEANT TO KEEP ON LINE)

'' But on to your question about glass gas -- the boiling point of silicon dioxide is 2230 Celsius. Addition of impurities will probably raise this boiling point.

Hi I think Silicon boiling point from wiki silicon page 2628 K (2355 °C, 5909 °F)


Arsenic melts at 817 C and boils at 614 C?!? Don't be silly. 23191Pa (chat me, but mind the alphas!) 12:41, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
