Rare Earth knowledge basic

What about the purity of rare earth Chloride ?

Explain for purity of Rare Earth Chloridewhat is the purity of Rare Earth ChlorideWhats mean is “TREO”Whats means is the “RE/TREO”? TREO means Total content of Rare Earth Oxide, REO/TREO means this RE element's content in the Total content of Rare Earth Oxide; for example La2O3/TREO: 99.9%, TREO: 99%, means La2O3content is 99.9% in the total content of Rare Earth Oxide and Total content of Rare Earth Oxide is 99%.


Total content of Rare Earth Chloride are include those elements, Total 16 elements. They are La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, Lu, Sc, Y

RE = rare earth

REM = rare-earth Metals

REE = rare-earth elements

REO = rare-earth Oxide

REY = rare-earth elements and yttrium

LREE = light rare earth elements (Sc, La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Pm, Sm, Eu, and Gd; also known as the cerium group)

HREE = heavy rare earth elements (Y, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, Tm, Yb, and Lu; also known as the yttrium group


What are Rare Earths ?

The rare-earth elements (REEs) are a group of 17 elements (atomic numbers 57-71) that exhibit a range of unique electronic, optical and magnetic properties.

Because of their similarities to the REEs, scandium (Sc) and yttrium (Y) are considered by most scientists to be REEs too. Components manufactured from REE-containing compounds can have a profound effect on the ultimate performance of a range of complex, engineered systems and devices. Rare earths are used in the manufacturing of iPods, computers, cell phones, hybrid car motors, wind turbines and high tech military systems work. Rare earth Chloride are used in Glass, Metallurgy, Paint drier, Ceramics, Electronics industry


What are the application of rare earth Chloride ?

Lanthanum Fluoride, LaCl3 is the very important raw materials for FCC catalyst and water treatment. Lanthanum-rich lanthanide compounds have been used extensively for cracking reactions in FCC catalysts, especially to manufacture high-octane gasoline from heavy crude oil.

Rare earth Chloride Cerium, CeCl3 in forms of crystalline aggregates or light yellow lump aggregates, is the important material for catalyst, glass, phosphors and polishing powders.

Praseodymium Fluoride, PrCl3  used to colour glasses and enamels; when mixed with certain other materials, praseodymium produces an intense clean yellow colour in glass. Praseodymium Chloride is also the main raw materials for making Praseodymium Metal.

Neodymium Fluoride, NdCl3 mainly used for glass, crystal and capacitors. Colours glass delicate shades ranging from pure violet through wine-red and warm gray. Light transmitted through such glass shows unusually sharp absorption bands.

Samarium Fluoride, SmCl3 has specialized uses in glass, phosphors, lasers, and thermoelectric devices. 

Europium Fluoride, EuCl3 Europium Chloride is used as a raw material of phosphors for color cathode-ray tubes and liquid-crystal displays used in computer monitors and televisions employ europium oxide as the red phosphor. Europium Chloride is also applied in speciality laser glass.

Gadolinium Fluoride,GdCl3  is used for making optical glass and dopant for gadolinium yttrium garnets which have microwave applications. High purity of Gadolinium Chloride is used for making laser crystal and phosphors for colour TV tube.

Terbium Fluoride, TbCl3 has important role as an activator for green phosphors used in colour TV tubes, is also used in special lasers and as a dopant in solid-state devices.

Dysprosium Fluoride, DyCl3 has specialized uses in laser glass, phosphors and Dysprosium Metal halide lamp.

Rare Earth Erbium Fluoride, ErCl3 is an important colourant in glasses and porcelain enamel glazes. High purity Erbium Chloride is widely applied as dopant in making optical fibre and amplifier.

Holmium Fluoride, HoCl3  has specialized uses in ceramics, glass, phosphors and metal halide lamp, and dopant to garnet laser.

Thulium Fluoride, TmCl3  has specialized uses in ceramics, glass, phosphors, lasers. and also is the important dopant for fibre amplifiers.

Ytterbium fluoride YbCl3 is applied to numerous fiber amplifier and fiber optic technologies, High purity grades are widely applied  as a doping agent for garnet crystals in lasers a important colourant in glasses and porcelain enamel glazes.

Lutetium Fluoride, LuCl3 is applied in making laser crystal, and also have specialized uses in ceramics, glass, phosphors, lasers.

Scandium Fluoride, ScCl3 is applied in optical coating, catalyst, electronic ceramics and laser industry.

Yttrium fluoride, YCl3 is widely applied in electronic ceramics, glass, and phosphors. High purity grades are the most important materials for tri-bands Rare Earth phosphors and yttrium-iron-garnets, which are very effective microwave filters.


About Rare earth pricing

Rare earth elements are not exchange-traded in the same way that precious (for instance, gold and silver) or non-ferrous Chlorides (such as nickel, tin, copper, and aluminium) are. Instead they are sold on the private market, which makes their prices difficult to monitor and track. The 17 elements are not usually sold in their pure form, but instead are distributed in mixtures of varying purity, e.g. "Neodymium Chloride ≥ 99%". As such, pricing can vary based on the quantity and quality required by the end user's application.
