Gadolinium powder is made from gadolinium metal, including gadolinium ingot by reduction method and distillation method. The particle size is available with -100mesh and -200mesh . It has ferromagnetic property and superconductivity. Gadolinium metal would oxidize in moisture air and get dark, however it doesn’t react with water. The common gadolinium alloy is gadolinium-magnesium alloy. Except that, praseodymium-neodymium-gadolinium alloy, aluminum-gadolinium alloy, cobalt-gadolinium alloy, zirconium-gadolinium alloy, magnesium-yttrium-gadolinium alloy, aluminum-lithium-gadolinium alloy, aluminum-gadolinium-samarium alloy, gadolinium-silicon-germanium alloy and gadolinium-molybdenum-cobalt alloy are also available.
