SB

The two-character ISO 3166 country code for SOLOMON ISLANDS.

SB

1. ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code for the Solomon Islands. This is the code used in international transactions to and from Solomon Islander bank accounts.

2. ISO 3166-2 geocode for the Solomon Islands. This is used as an international standard for shipping to the Solomon Islands. Each province and the capital territory has its own code with the prefix "SB." For example, the code for the Province of Isabel is ISO 3166-2:SB-IS.

FDA said antimony (Sb) is a heavy metal found naturally in the environment that can cause adverse health effects among humans by damaging lung, heart muscle, and liver.
When operational, the 20,000-tonnes-per-annum capacity project will account for a significant chunk of total global production of antimony products and position the sultanate as a world-scale producer, it said.
Antimony compounds are easy to be hydrolyzed in aqueous solutions, which makes difficult to synthesize their complexes [23], so the study of antimony complexes is much less than that of transition metal and rare earth metal complexes.
Several techniques including UV-visible spectrophotometry [10, 11], inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry [12, 13], hydride generation atomic fluorescence spectrometry [14, 15], flame atomic absorption spectrometry [16-18], and electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry [19-21] have been used for the determination of antimony species in various samples.
Oman's first antimony smelter project is set for cold commissioning next month, paving the way for the sultanate's elevation into a select group of global producers of a strategically important metal.
Strategic Precious Metals Processing (SPMP) contracted WorleyParsons Oman Engi- neering, with support from WorleyParsons RSA, to execute the en- gineering, procurement and construction management (EPCM) for the world's first world's first major antimony roaster outside of China in decades, designed to modern environmental standards.
