Talk:Tantalum hafnium carbide
|A fact from Tantalum hafnium carbide appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 6 May 2011 (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
What are other properties of this material, such as hardness at high temperature? Where to get such information?
Any more info?
This article seems pretty short. Does it have any uses? Is there any more info on it, like when it was discovered? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk • contribs) --Leyo 08:30, 29 August 2008 (UTC)
The article gives the formula for THC(!) as formula TaxHf1-xCy, which seems to imply that if there are 3 atoms of Tantalum, there should be (1-3 =)−2 atoms of hafnium, an ovbious impossibility. The article then goes on to describe an "alloy" whose formula doesn't match the first one, either. Should that first formula read "TaxHfyCz, where z = x + y"? Something else? --Piledhigheranddeeper (talk) 20:19, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
