Neodymium oxide is kind of light blue rare earth oxide powder, which turns dark blue after damping. Industrial grade is brown. It tends to damp and absorb carbon dioxide in air. Neodymium trioxide is insoluble in water, but soluble in dilute acid. When heating in air, it turns out high order oxide of neodymium.

Neodymium trioxide mainly apply as colorant of glass and ceramic. It is also raw material for metal neodymium and strong magnetic Nd-Fe-B.
Adding 1.5%~2.5% nano neodymium oxide in magnesium alloys or aluminum alloys can enhance their high-temperature property, gas tightness and corrosion resistance. They are widely used as aerospace material.
Nano yttrium oxide aluminum garnet with doping nano neodymium oxide shots short wave laser beam. It widely apply to 10mm max thin material welding and cutting. In medical treatment, it can replace scalpel to do extraction or disinfect wound.
Neodymium trioxide can be additive for rubber goods.
