Cerium Chloride Heptahydrate

Cerium chloride heptahydrate is white to yellow crystalline granular, which is a rare earth salt. It tend to dissolve in water and ethyl alcohol, which turn into anhydrous. When 90℃, cerium(III) chloride heptahydrate starts to lose water. After 230℃, it turn into cerium(III) chloride anhydrous. Cerium dioxide is the raw material.
