Ammonium Cerium Nitrate

Ammonium cerium nitrate is orange red crystalline granular, which is a rare earth salt. It tend to dissolve in water and ethyl alcohol, however hardly dissolve in concentrated nitric acid. It dissolve in alcohol, nitric acid and protonic solvent, some solubleness in acetonitrile, but not dissolve in methylene dichloride, trichloromethane and carbon tetrachloride. Rare earth fluoride is the raw material.

Diammonium cerium(IV) nitrate apply to test of trace silver ion, which is also catalyst for olefinic polymerization. It is titrating solution of redox.

Ammonium cerium(IV) nitrate uses as analytical reagent, which use to formulate titrating solution for redox. It is as color developing agent when testing polyhydric alcohols by thin layer chromatography. It is also raw material for production of membrane electrode composition that is sensitive to phosphate.

Cerium(IV) diammonium nitrate is chemical reagent that testing various amine by potentiometric titration. It is strong oxidizing agent, which get better oxidability at acidic condition and just lower than F2, XeO3, Ag2+j,O3, HN3.

(NH4)2Ce(NO3)6.2H2o is for etching agent for circuit board and medicine intermediate.
