Praseodymium Micron Powder
Praseodymium Micron Powder is an important element for a variety of uses. The chemical element praseodymium was discovered by Von Welsbach in 1885. It has the symbol Pr, its atomic number is 59, and it has an atomic mass of 140,907 g/mol. Praseodymium belongs to the group of actinides and lanthanides. It is a metal with a characteristic silver color, smooth consistency, good conductivity and quite malleable. Being exposed to air, it forms a layer of a fairly characteristic greenish color, hence its name. Praseodymium can be found in nature in various minerals such as bastnasite and monazite, which are a great source of this chemical element. Also, it can be obtained by applying extraction techniques such as the use of solvent compounds, the reduction of calcium chloride in fluoride anhydrides and ion exchange. Praseodymium Micron Powder is used in alloy with magnesium in the production of resistant metals, which are used in engines and in the construction of aircraft. It is also called mischmetal, like cerium, which is why it is used in lighters as an ignition material, in tools for cinematography in the lighting part, since it forms the nucleus of carbon electric arc lamps. It is also a component of fiber optic cables.
