Germanium occupies a unique position at the crossroads of the periodic chart. Germanium is a semi-conducting metal
surrounded by silicon, tin, gallium and arsenic. Of these elements, germanium is by far the most costly but its
contribution to our advancing and evolving society is priceless. Fiberoptic systems, semi-conductors, photodiodes, infrared
components, catalysts, pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements all depend on germanium.
Parish Chemical Company has nearly twenty years of experience in the development of commercial germanium chemical
High grade germanium process streams from natural resource reserves are converted to germanium tetrachloride which is
