What is Neodymium oxide?
A rare earth oxide, neodymium oxide can be used in many applications. This oxide is used primarily in Neodymium Iron Born (NdFeB) permanent magnets. Televisions, glass colorings, fluorescent materials, laser material, and other additives in rubber manufacturing. The elegant color of neodymium oxide is also a great discolorer. The oxide can also be used to make ceramics, dye textiles, and superconductivity, among other high-tech materials. There has been a steady increase in research and applications of neodymium oxygen in catalysis. This includes catalyzing carboxylic acid ester synthesis as well as the amination fatty alcohols. Good catalytic properties are demonstrated by nano-neodymium oxygen.
Chemical and Physical Properties of Neodymium Oxide
Neodymium dioxide is a type of lavender solid-powder. Your body can be easily affected by water. It is able to absorb carbon dioxide found in the air. It is not soluble or soluble with water. Its relative density is 7.24. The melting point is approximately 1900. Partially, heating the air may cause the high price for neodymium oxygen. Three types of neodymiumoxide crystal structure are available: triangular, cubic and hexagonal. Because of the nanostructure and surface of nanoparticles of neodymium, this material is more magnetism-, optics-, and electrically efficient than traditional neodymium oxid materials.
1. The chemical precipitation method
The most common and widely-used method to prepare nano-neodymiumoxid particles from the liquid phase is chemical precipitation. You use various precipitating materials and raw materials with neodymium Ions to make insoluble carbonate, oxalate, precursors and precipitate, filter, then calcine the precursors to get nano-scaled neodymium powder. There are several methods that can be used to make neodymium oxide powder. These include co-precipitation (homogeneous precipitation), complex precipitation, and others. It is very simple and easy to perform, as well as low on equipment. The method can be used to prepare nano neodymium powder materials for industry or laboratories. It is also easy to make agglomerates of precursor particles during the preparation. This results in large particles for final neodymium powder.
2. Pyrolysis is a method of removing toxins from the body.
Nano-neodymiumoxide can be prepared by pyrolysis. Although the process is straightforward, cost-effective, high yield, and easy to manage, it’s difficult to produce particles that are similar in size. Thermal decomposition, for example, uses 2-nitrobenzoic Acid and neodymium Nitrate as raw materials in order to produce nano neodymium powder. It has an average particle size 15nm.
Areas for Application
1. Applications in catalysis
Ultrafine powders of rare earth neodymium oxalate ultrafine have many applications in the field catalysis. The nano-neodymiumoxid ultrafine powder is used for the synthesis important chemical raw material such as butyl propionate and isobutylacetate. Additionally, carbon nanotubes with Nd2O3 particles are excellent catalysts to decrease the quantity of solid rocket propellants. Thermal decomposition temperatures of ammonium chlorate increase their burning rates.
2. Applications in ceramic industries
The ceramic industry can also benefit from ultrafine rare Earth neodymium powder. A rare earth metal neodymium dioxide film coated ceramic pigment has a beautiful pearlescent hue. It is light violet in color. This pigment is less stable than others, it is more consistent, is more subtle, is more original, and has a better finish. This pigment can provide excellent UV shielding properties. A new laser-working material is Nd-doped yellowtrium oxide ceramics (NdY2O3). It has great potential for high-power lasers.
