How to store neodymium oxide?

Inwin-style News 2021-04-22
What is neodymium oxide?
The chemical formula is Nd2O3, which is a metal oxide. Insoluble in water, soluble in acid. Neodymium(III) oxide or neodymium oxide is a compound composed of neodymium and oxygen. It forms very light gray-blue hexagonal crystals. Neodymium (previously considered a mixture of elements) is partly composed of neodymium oxide.
Light blue solid neodymium oxide powder turns dark blue when exposed to moisture. Easily humid, absorb carbon dioxide from the air, insoluble in water, soluble in inorganic acid.
What is the use of neodymium oxide?
Neodymium oxide is mainly used as a colorant for glass and ceramics. The raw material for manufacturing neodymium metal and the raw material for strong magnetic neodymium iron boron. Adding 1.5% to 2.5% nanometer neodymium oxide in magnesium alloy or aluminum alloy can improve the high temperature performance and gas of the alloy. Tightness and corrosion resistance, widely used as aerospace materials. In addition, nano yttrium aluminum garnet doped with nano neodymium oxide produces a short-wave laser beam, which is widely used in the industry for welding and cutting thin materials with a thickness of less than 10 mm. In medical treatment, nano yttrium aluminum garnet laser doped with nano neodymium oxide is used instead of scalpel for surgical removal or disinfection of wounds. Nano neodymium oxide is also used for the coloring of glass and ceramic materials, as well as rubber products and additives.

How is neodymium oxide Nd2O3 powder produced?
(1) The inorganic salt containing neodymium, the surfactant and the carbonate form a precipitation reaction system to obtain neodymium carbonate particles.
(2) The preheated neodymium carbonate particles are first calcined one after another according to the temperature range, and then cooled to obtain neodymium oxide.

Storage conditions of neodymium oxide Nd2O3 powder
Packed in two layers of polyethylene plastic bags, each with a net weight of 1kg, 2kg, and 5kg. Coated iron drums or cardboard boxes. It should be stored in a ventilated and dry place. To prevent damage to the package, keep the package sealed to prevent water and moisture.
