Lutetium(III) Oxide (Lu₂O₃)

Lutetium(III) oxide, a white solid, also called lutecia, is a lanthanide oxide that is insoluble in water but soluble in all common acids. Lutecia exhibits favorable physical properties, such as a high melting point (around 2400ºC), phase stability, mechanical strength, hardness, thermal conductivity, and low thermal expansion; lutetium(III) oxide is not conductive to electricity. This material is offered in R&D quantities.

Purity: 99.9%
Typical Applications

Lutetium(III) Oxide is used in specialty glass, optic, and ceramic applications. It also is used as a phosphor in x-ray applications and solid-state lasers and as a catalyst for cracking, alkylation, hydrogenation, and polymerization.
