Beryllium hydroxide is an amphoteric compound with chemical formula Be(OH)2. An
amphoteric chemical compound is so called, due to its nature of acting either as base or
an acid during the chemical reaction. Amphoteric behavior is dependent upon the
oxidation state of the oxide. Beryllium hydroxide is vivid white, opaque crystals and
slightly soluble in water; synonymously known as Beryllium dihydroxide.
Industrially, Beryllium hydroxide is obtained as a byproduct in the extraction of beryllium
metal from the ores beryl and bertrandite. Beryl ores are usually imported whereas
Bertrandite ore is obtained from mining activities. Beryllium Hydroxide thus produced is
used in the processing of Beryllium-Metal alloys, Copper Beryllium master alloy and in
ceramic processing to get Beryllium Oxide Ceramic shapes. Beryllium hydroxide is used as
an intermediate in the manufacture of beryllium and beryllium oxide. Its the universal
raw material for the production of Beryllium and all other forms.

Beryllium is the fourth element on the periodic table and the 44th most abundant
element in the earth’s crust. It occurs in rocks and minerals, although the most highly
enriched beryllium deposits are found in granitic pegmatites. Around 50 berylliumcontaining minerals have been identified. Only ores containing Beryl (3BeO.Al2O3.6SiO2)
and Bertrandite (4BeO.2SiO2.H2O) have achieved economic significance. Beryllium is the
lightest of all solid chemically stable substances, and has an unusually high melting-point.
It has a very low density and a very high strength-to-weight ratio.
