Lanthanum Oxide Micron Powder
Lanthanum is a Block F, Period 6 element, while oxygen is a Block P, Period 2 element. Lanthanum oxide is an odorless, white solid. It is insoluble in water, and soluble in dilute acid. Lanthanum oxide nanoparticles have high photoelectric conversion efficiency. Lanthanum oxide micron powders draw great attention due to their magnetic, thermal, electrical properties.The key applications of lanthanum oxide micron powder are as a magnetic particle for magnetic data storage and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in biosensors, for phosphate removal in bio medical and water treatment applications, in laser crystals and optics, nanowires, nanofibers, and in specific alloy and catalyst applications. Besides, they are used in piezoelectric materials to increase product piezoelectric coefficients and improve product energy conversion efficiency, for the manufacture of high-refraction optical fibers, precision optical glasses, and other alloy materials, in preparation of several perovskite nanostructures like lanthanum manganite and lanthanum chromite, for the cathode layer of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC). In addition, for the preparation of organic chemical products catalysts, and in automobile exhaust catalysts, lanthanum oxide micron powders are commonly used.
