Rare Earth Carbonate Applications
Cerium Carbonate (Ce2(CO3)3):
Cerium carbonate can be used to produce cerium chloride and incandescent lampshade, an intermediate compound of cerium, the raw material of cerium chloride, cerium oxide, and other cerium compounds. It can also be used to manufacture automobile exhaust purification catalyst.
Lanthanum Carbonate (La2(CO3)3):
Lanthanum carbonate is mainly used as an intermediate compound in lanthanum production and can be used as raw material of lanthanum chloride, lanthanum oxide, and other lanthanum compounds.
Neodymium Carbonate (Nd2(CO3)3):
Neodymium carbonate can be used in glass decolorizer, colorant, and capacitor material.
Praseodymium Carbonate (Pr2(CO3)3):
Praseodymium carbonate is an important raw material for producing praseodymium oxide and other praseodymium compounds.
