YTTERBIUM OXIDE Usage And Synthesis
  • DescriptionYtterbium oxide is the oxide product of the rare earth metal element ytterbium. It can be used in thermal shielding coating materials, electronic materials, active device materials, battery materials and bio-pharmaceuticals. It is also applied to fiber amplifier and fiber optic technologies and in lasing applications. The spectral emissivity of ytterbium oxide-based materials also makes it be used as selective emitter in thermophotovoltaic devices.

  • Chemical PropertiesYtterbium (III) oxide is white powder and pieces, has no odour, is insoluble in water, and is incompatible with strong acids, oxidising agents, and carbon dioxide.
  • Physical propertiesColorless cubic crystals when pure; tinted brown or yellowish white in presence of thulia; density 9.17 g/cm3; insoluble in water; soluble in hot dilute acids.
  • UsesYtterbium oxide (Yb2O3) is used to make special alloys, ceramics, and glass. It can be used for carbon arc-lamp electrodes that produce a very bright light.
  • PreparationYtterbium oxide is produced as an intermediate in recovering ytterbium from minerals (See Ytterbium). After opening the ore by digestion with concentrated sulfuric acid or caustic soda solution at high temperatures, rare earths are separated by ion exchange, solvent extraction, or fractional precipitation. Ytterbium fraction is treated with oxalic acid or sodium oxalate to precipitate ytterbium oxalate, which is ignited to yield ytterbium oxide.
