Lutetium Oxide

Lutetium Oxide

Lutetium Oxide (Lu2O3), also called lutecia, is a cubic compound of lutetium. It is a lanthanide oxide, also known as a rare earth. Lutetium Oxide is white in color and insoluble in water, it is not conductive to electricity. However, it produces lutetium tantalate, the densest white material known, and is frequently used for x-ray phosphors. It is also insoluble in water solutions and is useful for ceramic applications. We provide high purity Lu2O3 with powder, granules, pellets, sputtering targets, and other customized forms.

Applications of Lu2O3

-Used in glass, optic and ceramic applications.
-Used as phosphors in x-ray applications.
-Some lutetium compounds also have specific uses. E.g.: lutetium tantalate (LuTaO4) is the densest known stable white material (density 9.81 g/cm3) and therefore is widely used in X-ray phosphors.
-As a catalyst for cracking, alkylation, hydrogenation, and polymerization.
