Gadolinium (Gd) Metal

Gadolinium (Gd) is a rare earth metal that is moderately ductile, hard, and fairly stable in the air. Gadolinium reacts slowly with water and rapidly with most diluted acids. Gadolinium has unusual superconductive properties when alloyed with iron, chromium, or related metals and is found to greatly improve workability and resistance to temperature and oxidation. Gadolinium also has unique magnetic properties and demonstrates ferromagnetic properties near room temp but paramagnetic properties above this temp.

Purity: 99.9%
Typical Applications

Gadolinium is used in X-ray and MRI scanning systems and in control rods of nuclear reactors. It is also used for visual displays on television screens. It is used in magnets, specialty optics, and computer memory. It also has some metallurgical uses, with as little as 1% of gadolinium improving the workability and resistance of iron, chromium, and related alloys to high temperatures and oxidation.
