What is Gadolinium Oxide Powder?
Properties of Gadolinium Oxide
White odorless amorphous powder, insoluble in water, soluble in acid. When exposed to the air, it is easy to absorb moisture and carbon dioxide in the air and deteriorate. It is a highly alkaline oxide that can react with carbon dioxide to form carbonate. It is easily soluble in common inorganic acids. The complication is that oxalic acid, fluoride, sulfate and phosphate are very insoluble in water and may cover oxide particles, thereby preventing their complete dissolution.
Gadolinium Oxide Preparation
Using monazite or mixed rare earth ore as a raw material, through extraction and other purification steps, a samarium-gadolinium mixed rare earth solution is prepared. Gadolinium oxalate is precipitated with oxalic acid, and gadolinium oxide is obtained after separation, drying and burning.
Gadolinium oxide use
Used as yttrium aluminum and yttrium iron garnet dopants, sensitizing fluorescent materials in medical equipment, nuclear reactor control materials, raw materials for preparing metal gadolinium
, magnetic bubble materials and optical prism additives, etc.
Application of Gadolinium Oxide Powder
1. Fluorescent powder for color picture tube
2. Optical glass
3. Atomic reaction absorption material
4. The microwave application used to prepare gadolinium garnet yttrium.
Ordinary rust can save astronauts
Because according to the latest research findings, powdered rust is actually a particularly effective anti-radiation coating. The radiation referred to here is the kind of radiation that astronauts will receive in outer space once they leave the protection of the earth’s atmosphere. Oxidized metals, especially gadolinium oxide, can block more radiation than any other substance at the same weight.
Packaging and transportation of oxidized powder
It is packed in a double-layer plastic bag inside, which can be filled with argon in a vacuum; it can be evacuated and filled with argon for protection.
Gd2O3 powder packaging:
vacuum packaging, 100g, 500g or 1kg/bag, 25kg/drum, or according to your requirements.
Gd2O3 powder transportation:
After the payment receipt, it can be shipped out by sea, air, or express as soon as possible.
