Cerium(Ce) Oxide

Cerium Oxide, also known as cerium dioxide, Cerium(IV) Oxide or cerium dioxide, is an oxide of the rare-earth metal cerium. It is a pale yellow-white powder with the chemical formula CeO2. It is an important commercial product and an intermediate in the purification of the element from the ores. The distinctive property of this material is its reversible conversion to a non-stoichiometric oxide.

What is Cerium Oxide used for?

Cerium Oxide is considered to be a lanthanide metal oxide and is used as an ultraviolet absorber, catalyst, polishing agent, gas sensors etc. Cerium oxide-based materials have been used as photocatalyst for degradation of harmful compounds in water and air effluents with some attention also to photothermal catalytic reactions, for selective oxidation reactions, CO2 reduction, and water splitting. For commercial purpose, cerium oxide nano particle/nano powder plays a vital role in cosmetic products, consumer products, instruments and high technology. It has also been used prolifically in various engineering and biological applications, such as solid-oxide ...

Cerium(III) Oxalate Hydrate
Cerium(III) Oxalate (Cerous Oxalate) is the inorganic cerium salt of oxalic acid, which is highly insoluble in water and converts to the oxide when heated (calcined). It is a white crystalline solid with the chemical formula of Ce2(C2O4)3. It could be obtained by the reaction of oxalic acid with cerium(III) chloride.
high grade Lanthanum hydroxide Hydrate
Lanthanum Hydroxide
Lanthanum Hydroxide is a highly water insoluble crystalline Lanthanum source, which can be obtained by adding an alkali such as ammonia to aqueous solutions of lanthanum salts such as lanthanum nitrate.   This produces a gel-like precipitate that can then be dried in air. Lanthanum hydroxide does not react much with alkaline substances, however is slightly soluble in acidic solution. It is used compatibly with higher (basic) pH environments.

Holmium Oxide
Holmium(III) oxide, or holmium oxide is a highly insoluble thermally stable Holmium source. It is a chemical compound of a rare-earth element holmium and oxygen with the formula Ho2O3. Holmium oxide occurs in small quantities in the minerals monazite, gadolinite, and in other rare-earth minerals. Holmium metal easily oxidizes in air; therefore presence of holmium in nature is synonymous with that of holmium oxide. It is suitable for glass, optic and ceramic applications.
