Cerium(III) Carbonate

Short Description:

Cerium(III) Carbonate Ce2(CO3)3, is the salt formed by cerium(III) cations and carbonate anions. It is a water insoluble Cerium source that can easily be converted to other Cerium compounds, such as the oxide by heating (calcin0ation).Carbonate compounds also give off carbon dioxide when treated with dilute acids.

What is Cerium(III) Carbonate used for?

Cerium(III) Carbonate is used in the production of cerium(III) chloride, and in incandescent lamps.Cerium Carbonate is also applied in making auto catalyst and glass, and also as a raw materials for producing other Cerium compounds. In glass industry, it is considered to be the most efficient glass polishing agent for precision optical polishing. It is also used to decolorize glass by keeping iron in its ferrous state. The ability of Cerium-doped glass to block out ultra violet light is utilized in the manufacturing of medical glassware and aerospace windows. Cerium Carbonate is generally immediately available in most volumes. Ultra high purity and high purity compositions improve both optical quality and usefulness as scientific standards.

By the way, the numerous commercial applications for cerium include metallurgy, glass and glass polishing, ceramics, catalysts, and in phosphors. In steel manufacturing it is used to remove free oxygen and sulfur by forming stable oxysulfide and by tying up undesirable trace elements, such as lead and antimony.
