Iodine Applications





Applications

Iodine and its compounds are used basically in medicine and analytical chemistry, in organic synthesis and in photography. Iodine industrious applications are not enhanced yet, but may be developed. Iodides are constituent part of high-purity alloys production.

Iodine is used in pharmaceuticals, antiseptics and antifungal medications, in antiphlogistic treatment. Iodine is also used in the internal treatment for thyroid metabolism support. Small iodine doses inhibit the thyroid functions affecting on thyreotrophin function of anterior lobe of hypophysis. Iodine affects also on lipids and Iodine radioactive isotopes - 125I, 131I, 132I, and others are extensively used in biology and medicine in thyroid diagnostics which is based on iodine property to concentrate selectively in thyroid and in suppression of the cells functionality via beta-radiation emitted by iodine isotopes.
