Neodymium Fluoride

Neodymium fluoride is purple powder of hexagonal crystal structure, which is rare earth metal fluoride. It is insoluble in water, hydrochloric acid, nitric acid and sulfuric acid, but soluble in perchloric acid. Although absorb moist in air, it is relatively stable. It reacts with ammonium fluoride to form insoluble compound salt NH4F.NdF3. Neodymium oxide or neodymium nitrate is the raw material.

Applications

Neodymium trifluoride applies to make scintillant of detector, rare earth crystal laser material and rare earth fluoride glass fibre optics. In metallurgy industry, it is additive for magnesium alloy used in aviation and electrolytic production of metal neodymium. NdF3 use to make carbon electrode of electric arc lighting in lighting source. It is also raw material for neodymium iron boron alloy (NdFeB)
