Gadolinium Oxalate

Gadolinium oxalate is existed in hydrate normally, which is monoclinic crystal. It is rare earth oxalate salt, which is hard to dissolve in water. The solubility of gadolinium(III) oxalate in 25℃ water is just 0.55mg/L. Gd2(C2O4)3.10H2O is insoluble in water, but soluble in acids. It loses six water molecular at 110℃.  Its production method is same as lanthanum oxalate. Gadolinium chloride or gadolinium nitrate is the raw material.

Gadolinium Oxalate

CAS No.:100655-00-3 Molecular Formula:Gd2(C2O4)3.10H2O Molecular Weight:578.55 UN 3288

Applications

Gadolinium(III) oxalate hydrate get wide uses in extraction of rare earth elements specially extract rare earth metals elements from xenotime. It is also common raw material for rare earth oxides, especially production of PL phosphors and cathode ray fluorescent powder.
